Viewing All Living Beings as Supreme
The highest state of being is full enlightenment, and the main path to enlightenment is the realizations of love, compassion, bodhichitta, and the six perfections. We can only develop these realizations with the help of other living beings - we need them to practice love, compassion, giving, patience, etc. This makes all living beings very precious to us, since we cannot attain our final goal, enlightenment, without them. This is true no matter how they treat us. We actually need living beings that challenge us, criticize us, and test our patience; we can’t grow spiritually without them. Once we understand this, we will cherish these beings as well as the ones who please us that we find easy to cherish. Eventually, we will be able to cherish all living beings without exception.
