Don’t Let What’s Out There In Here
If we don’t like what other people are doing, that is the moment when what we don’t like has entered our mind. Whatever was out there is now in here. The important thing is just seeing, rather than our opinion on what we see – in this way, we remain sane. The world is full of likes and dislikes; not becoming involved, we remain at peace.
There is much that is making people suffer, and acknowledging this suffering starts our path to realisation and enlightenment.
Of course, we want to do something about suffering en masse. But what can we do?
“Know your enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles, you will never be defeated. When you are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal. If ignorant both of your enemy and of yourself, you are sure to be defeated in every battle.”
– Sun Tzu
