The untrained mind is weak.
We cling to our Self instead of the Truth. Self begets selfishness. It is the origin of error, the source of illusion, the germ of evil.
We learn the important things when pressure is applied - by environment, by peers, and by the expectations we have on ourselves.
We fear of risk. But risk is a multiplier because without consequence we cannot command our best effort from ourselves.
Things of the world and its inhabitants are subject to change. Life and death forms a complementary cycle.
The longer we escape the Truth, the deeper our dream becomes, and the farther away we are from Reality.
