You don't WORK towards Grace. You cannot!
Grace CHOOSES you, MOVES towards you, and GETS you!
At best, there are a few pre-requisites for you to be OPEN to grace.
In Buddhism, Dharmakaya represents the timeless, unmanifested, 'omniscient' essence of The Supreme Being (Buddha) which is at the background of all 'phenomena' arising and dissolving simultaneously.
Won Buddhism illustrates the Four Graces of Dharmakaya as:
- The Grace of Heaven and earth
- The Grace of Parents
- The Grace of Brethren and
- The Grace of Law.
The Grace of Parents states that parents educate and nurture us so that we may attain self-ability; one owes one's existence to parents, and must care for and love them.
The Grace of Brethren emphasizes the value of community, teaching that all members of society, including birds, beasts, trees and grass, are helpful to humanity; it refers to living with mutual interest in order to secure peace and justice.
The Grace of Law says that one must learn and practice the laws of self-discipline, of the family, of the society, of the nation and of the world; these laws should mean both spiritual cultivation and equitable rule by which justice is served.
~(The Scripture of Won Buddhism, pp. 8-20)
Now, how OPEN are you GRACE?
