“When we consider that everything we experience results from a complex interplay of causes and conditions, we find that there is no single thing to desire or resent, and it becomes more difficult for the afflictions of attachment or anger to arise.”
-H.H. the Dalai Lama
This Week’s Discussion Topic
Point out an example from you own life that shows the interplay of cause and effect, and discuss how these factors led to your experience of reality in that particular instance. Bonus points for causes and conditions that resulted in a much different “effect” than you’d typically expect.
