While walking past some roadworks I noticed this sign.
There is no true happiness in samsara and instead of blaming the weather, politicians, history or enemies, I should remember that the true enemy is the ignorant mind of self-grasping. If I want to carry out some improvements in my quality of life, I need to reduce my self-grasping ignorance. And if I want to find permanent freedom from samsara, I need to abandon self-grasping entirely.
May all living beings be free from self-grasping.
