We often complain of lack of opportunities.
We blame our fate and curse our neighbours.
We are displeased with everyone else, men and gods!
But we fail to realize that not they but our own spiritual ignorance and delusion are our real enemies.
How is it that I am thinking something, saying something else and doing yet another thing?
This is the problem of modern civilisation.
I am immediately freed from this wasteful pastime of running other people down.
If that can happen to us, it is already a great gain.
