Understanding Causal Conditions

Yutang Lin

Stuck with rigid views, incongruities are bound to be plenty.
Mind as open as space, nothing would become a hindrance.
Matters being causally conditioned, resolve them rationally.
Why add extra burdens by sinking in worries and anxieties?


As soon as views are fixed there would be much incongruity and hindrance. Constantly maintain an open mind, and then one would experience less irritation as matters arise and evolve. Matters being causally conditioned, they should be resolved through understanding of those causal conditions. Worries and anxieties would not help but are only self-disturbances.
