Everything is caused by this dakini principle of energy, including positive aspects of situations as well….Therefore, dealing with this energy is very important in the practice of meditation as well as in life as a whole. One might regard oneself as completely law-abiding and sensible. But equally, there are other energy aspects creeping underneath that. One cannot simply try to be aware and watch oneself, do good, and be sensible; that is, try to be good. But one must also deal with one’s own powerful energy flow, which could manifest as love, hate, jealousy, pride as well as other manifestations. They are not necessarily to be condemned.
