Attachment is the root of all evil - perhaps the only evil - not to be destroyed or annihilated, for that would be contrary to the law of nature, but definitely to be conquered.
The indivisible manifests as the diverse; all contradictions harmonise in the indivisible.
This is considered a great secret because of the human intellect's inability to comprehend the totality.
Hence the need to resort to an approach that is beyond the intellect but not irrational.
Life has become a problem only because we have tried to isolate it from death, treating death itself as a problem.
When we see that death is not a problem, but an inevitable component of life, then life is not a problem either.
Life and death are inseparable.
