For our infinite living to become infinite happiness, others must experience their infinite living as infinite happiness. So even though we have not yet fully experienced the infinite bliss of awakening, we naturally decide that we will awaken the whole world of beings along with us. Once we know this, our motivation is no longer just to liberate ourselves from suffering. We recognize that it would be impossible to experience perfect bliss if even one single being had no share in it and continued to suffer. The Buddha taught that this powerful desire to deliver all beings from suffering is the very soul of awakening, the soul of the Bodhisattva, who is dedicated to saving the world. The soul of awakening is aware of its oneness with all other souls, intermittently at first, needing reminders. But eventually this awareness becomes its natural orientation. It is the soul of one who is determined to save the whole community from suffering and considers all beings the community.
