I was leafing through my book of Buddhist scriptures and found a quote I really admired:
“As rain breaks through an ill-thatched house, passion will break through an unreflecting mind.”
This inspired me to write a few observations I’ve been formulating in my head lately:
- We fear what we do not understand
- Our longevity is arbitrary due to death’s innate inevitability.
- Purpose is synthetic; however, this does not invalidate our need to pursue it.
- Truth is general belief.
- Deceit is the sin from which all sins stem.
