Simplicity Is Never Thrown By Complexity
When we know our essence of pure, compassionate consciousness, together with the three corresponding poisons of desire, fear and indifference that obscure this essence, we then know everything we need to know, as practitioners.
These prime aspects of life can, of course, be broken down into other elements, and that leads to confusion. Over the centuries, elaborations upon elaborations occurred, and became increasingly complex and distracting.
‘Pure’ means being empty of bias – transcendent wisdom.
‘Compassionate’ means caring – encompassing the five perfections of generosity, patience, morality, discipline and concentration/meditation.
‘Consciousness’ is what we actually are; we are embodied in a human form but forget transcendent wisdom.
