The forms of things are like the flow of water and the movement of the wind. Water flows from top to bottom. The wind blows from cold to hot, from hot to cold.

They say peace is joyous, but life is also joyous.
I am happy to be. I'm happy to move. I am happy to have. I'm happy not to be. I'm happy not to move. I'm happy not to have one. What can you do to scare me? Pain that is an illusion?

Idols cause pain and suffering. The life of idolaters is an endless suffering, because their idols are so small and insignificant, and the real world, causing fear and pain, is huge. Idolaters build walls around themselves, turn their homes into prisons. We feel sorry for these people. Compassion fills our hearts with sadness.

The value of things is not a quantitative function, but a percentage-quality one. The value of an item will differ significantly if one person's item is worth 1% of their monthly income, while another person's item is worth 50%.
A self-confident person is not interested in someone else's estimated opinion about his Affairs. He is not afraid of other people's opinions, but he does not ask them. When you know the value of things, you become indifferent to other people's estimates.
What do ants and moths care about the truth?.. it is not clear. Ants eat, reproduce, collect twigs and grains of sand, build anthills... The ant's self-esteem and love is based on the number of twigs and grains of sand that it owns. An ant is a slave of things that belong to it.
The idealist's " I " consists of the things that he controls. The more control, the more I and his pride. Loss of control destroys the self, reduces It, and plunges it into fear, pain, and awe. Therefore, the proud are greedy and jealous, they can not bear to lose.
