Like the rays of the sun

Bodhicitta should be like the sun, it should be always emitting light outwards, not expecting to receive light rays. Just like being in a dark cave, do not expect receiving any light! This is how our self-grasping is like, it always wanted to take, receive, receive, receive, expecting from other people, relying on other people. Do not do this when practicing bodhicitta! Bodhicitta is like the rays of the sun, it is always emitting light outwards!
