The so-called virtuous thoughts must have an important characteristic, which is the ability to observe and empathize with others, and a genuine wish for the well-being of others. This is a broad generalization. Regardless of whether these thoughts translate into actions or bring warmth to others, whenever virtuous thoughts arise, our own hearts first become soft and open. The space that was once filled with anger, arrogance, and greed naturally expands, making room to include others. It must be acknowledged that even the most malicious person occasionally experiences virtuous thoughts. In those fleeting moments, the emergence of virtuous thoughts serves as the fertile ground for cultivating the mind of enlightenment.
