If within a group, everyone have different ideas, compromises with each other, and serves with a noble ideal, then it would be very comfortable and pleasant.
Actually enlightenment comes by practice and in dealing with other people.
When we work together with other people, we would have a sense of participation and then we will be able to feel the happy atmosphere of the group. If we only stand on one side and watch, then we will easily criticize other people's action. "Why does he laugh like a silly person?" "Why did that person keep crying when he saw Master? Why is it that he/she wanted to embrace Master?" We, ourselves, cannot be active, only able to see the bad areas, unable to be compassionate with his feelings.
A group has a group's atmosphere, everyone has his/her atmosphere. When we act together with a group, the ego is easily lost. When everyone is happy, we are also happy. Seeing others happy I also become happy. It does not matter whether we have the same thing or not. When other people are happy in seeing Master, I am also happy for him. In seeing Master, a loving heart is bestowed upon him. We, ourselves, also have the same feeling of being bestowed upon with a loving heart from Master. That is a real practitioner, a real selfless person. There is no ego, no "me". When we have this ego, we have more suffering. We think the world should be following, chasing us from behind, should be serving us, should know our mood and what is happening today with us. Nonsense!
We, just one person, are not that important. Why should others take care of us? What good have we done for society? Having not served anyone. What sort of earth-shaking good deeds have we done that we are worthy of being taken care of by others, to match our mood, to see what time we are glad, what time we are happy. What nonsense!
