It’s something to look out for.
We would all like things to be better. This creates reactions, and emotions arise in the mind from a sense of compassion, but it becomes personal, and so we get involved.
Through identification, positive emotions become negative: their source, however, is still wisdom…really!
Pure awareness sees something amiss; the dust on the mirror. Through proper instruction, this dust – negative emotions – helps us realise the source of recognition: pure awareness. This is the two truths working in harmony: with refinement, they are seen as a unity, as recognition is instantaneous.
Unfortunately, when we justify our negativity and blame others, we fall into the darkness of negative negativity. It’s something to look out for.
When we see clearly,
there is light in negative emotions.
All phenomena are clearly seen in emptiness.
That’s the buddha in the mud!
