Even Pavement along the Reasonable Path Yutang Lin
Following or reversing the sequence of conditional origination
Just as Buddha taught that following or reversing the sequence of twelve conditional origination would lead to entanglement or liberation, in daily life if one can purify ones mind through Dharma practices and services, observe the causal conditions of matters, and act in accordance with compassion and tolerance, then one would enjoy peace and ease for long. Even when one encounters unjust or unfortunate circumstances, one who understands the above and has kept up with life accordingly would pass through difficulties with serenity, transcend mental torture of incessant preoccupation, and feels pity and sorry for those who are committing irrational and violent acts because they are still swirling in confusion and delusion. Life is pitifully transient, and yet there is still no time in sight when such persons would understand the proper way of life, change their behaviors, and then enjoy peace and harmony.
