The Three Causes Of The Known Universe

We all know them:

Positive, negative and neutral.
Attraction, repulsion and inertia.
Desire, aversion and indifference.

The three poisons obscuring spiritual realisation.

The Three Causes of the Knowing Universe

Emptiness, cognisance, compassion.
The three wisdoms to spiritual realisation.

The correlation

Desire = Emptiness
Aversion = Awareness
Ignorance = Compassion

When we forget emptiness, desire fills emptiness with concepts.
When we forget awareness, aversion arises as we start judging.
When we forget compassion, ignorance becomes indifferent to others.


It’s so simple … but a lot to take in.
