    Rinpoche, I know this is illusory, but my current experience is that there is such a wide gap between my aspiration to generate bodhicitta, and my actual daily dharma practice of trying to let go of negative emotions. Will this gap become less extreme if I am patient and wait for the teachings to come on the Bodhicharyavatara, or is there a way of bringing things together more actively?
    thank you.
