Limitless aspirations ~ 17th Karmapa

Since the future is limitless and sentient beings are limitless, our aspirations can be limitless too. With this attitude, we can reach the end of any problem, because we can make our aspiration unlimited and project it as far into the future as needed until that problem is solved. This can make our resolve to extend ourselves as much as needed absolutely unwavering. When our aspirations are vast as the sky and extending until the time when all suffering is ended, we will not be disappointed or discouraged if we do not see the results immediately or even in a foreseeable future.
