"Instead, by applying close mindfulness to the body, feelings mental events, and all phenomena, we observe with increasing clarity how these things actually are: illusory, unreal, and mere designations in conventional speech. Seeing the extent of suffering in the world, we cease clinging to the body as the true source of our existence, Seeing the misunderstandings that cause the world’s suffering, we stop craving feelings as the true source of our happiness. Seeing that suffering can actually be extinguished, we release our grasping on to mental events as the true source of our identity. And seeing the actual nature of reality, we abandon an the entities habitually designated upon subjective and objective appearances as the true source of our experience.
The Buddha declared chat mental afflictions, such as lust, anger, and delusion, arc not inherent in our nature. He likened them to a pile of dirt in the middle of a crossroads, which represents our sensory and mental processes. Pour chariots enter this intersection from four directions, representing mindfulness directed toward the body feelings, mental states, and all phenomena, and they thoroughly disperse the pile of dirt.. When the mental afflictions are overcome, our true nature—which was merely obscured by these habitual misunderstandings—shines Froth with unlimited benefit for ourselves and all beings." By B. Alan Wallace
