Our relationship with the world is one of affixation, attachment, clinging, and at the root of that false relationship with the world lies a false conception of oneself. Because we perceive ourselves as limited, therefore we must cling to the world. Because the question ‘Who am I?’ has been answered wrongly by us, therefore we need a wrong relationship with the world. All of that is happening not because of the things in themselves, but because there is something within you that wants to have a sick relationship with things.

There is nothing in the world so important that you fall in love with it. There is nothing in the world so abhorrent that you start hating it. In either end of the spectrum lies a strong desire to associate yourself with the world, whether by affection or by disaffection.
