As all is mind; even small actions in altruism are litle steps toward wide oceanlike activities in equanimity with all beings.
It asks lots of power to break the pleasing protection kept under control by the guard dogs of prisonlike mind.
No any action is really bad or good or neutral intrinsically, and so those who want to be powerful and beyond bad and good, go on the vast path of liberation.
‘View like the sky’ means that nothing is held onto in any way whatsoever. You are not stuck anywhere at all. In other words, there is no discrimination as to what to accept and what to reject; no line is drawn separating one thing from another. ‘Conduct as fine as barley flour’ means that there is good and evil, and one needs to differentiate between the two. Give up negative deeds; practice the Dharma. In your behaviour, in your conduct, it is necessary to accept and reject.” Guru Rinpoche
