Carrying The Problems Of The World
The world will always have problems as it’s unenlightened. Unless we are actually in a problem situation and dealing with it, a problem is just a projection on the wall of our mind, exaggerated by imagination and sentimentality. When we carry problems around with us, we lose inner peace and sanity.
Others want to wind us up and get excited, egging us on to take sides. That’s what the unenlightened do. When we are just being where we are, all those mental worries do not exist – and playing with them only makes them seem real.
When we have a firm foundation, maybe we can be of use. Until then, we are just fodder for more problems.
