      "This is the job [of enlightenment] - continually lessening the
      deluded states of mind and continually growing the positive. And
      there's an organic, natural kind of process, not just some kind of
      random thing. It's like you would growing anything. If you continue
      practice piano, you will continue to become a better musician, won't
      you? It's logical. If you continue to nourish the seeds in your
      ground, the trees will continue to grow. It's not random at all. So
      if you continue to grow love and kindness and patience and
      generosity, and if you continue to pull out the weeds of anger and
      hate and jealousy and pride, it's not a random result; it's a very
      clear and logical result. You will become an astonishing person."
