It’s a bad idea to close your mind. Do not close your eyes and ears. You must accept everything that surrounds you. Some of it might not be attractive. Some of it might not be spectacular. However, it is all a part of our reality. There’s still a lot to learn. There are folks who have interesting tales to tell. They’ve gone through things that we haven’t and may never go through. If we simply open our hearts, eyes, and ears, we can learn from them.
Growth is neither what you can wait to attain in a deep valley as a hermit, nor what you can find on the other pure land after you die. Make up your mind to confront yourself. If you truly face yourself with elevated strength, you will get liberated from the current secular life.
