Life becomes more peaceful for those not attached to preferences. If you wish to know the truth, then hold to no opinions for or against anything. To set up what you like against what you dislike is the disease of the mind.

When the fundamental nature of things is not recognized, the mind’s essential peace is disturbed to no avail.

Life is perfect as vast space is perfect, where nothing is lacking and nothing is in excess. Indeed, it is due to our grasping and rejecting that we do not know the true nature of things.

Live neither in the entanglements of outer things, nor in ideas or feelings of emptiness. Be serene and at one with Life and misleading views will disappear by themselves.
