“If your nature is deluded
 Buddha-hood is Ordinary being.
If your nature is enlightened
 Ordinary being is Buddha-hood.”

So what causes the change from deluded to enlightened, given that the "default" seems to be deluded?

Samsara is the default for samsaric beings which are born of delusion so there's no choice once here. The change happens when through right effort we rid ourselves of delusion. Without right effort we just carry on, on karmic autopilot.
