So this is very important that we recognize that these three poisons inside our heart – our attachment, our hatred and our basic unknowing, our non-perceptiveness, our ignorance – are the cause of our sufferings in samsara. That is what’s causing the problems. It’s not out there. It’s in here. And because it’s in here, we can do something about it. This is the whole message. And that we don’t discard something thinking that is an obstacle to my practice, this is a help to my practice. Everything is a help to the practice if we have the right attitude. So it’s a matter of changing our responses. That’s all.
