【Mindfulness of Death】- Termed ourselves as a warrior
Currently, the moment when we see something going on, ai-ya, we will stare hard at others and get involved in a major confrontation. (Thinking) All these people are ignorant, fools, a bunch of ignorant fools! In the face of afflictions, we totally cannot identify (the afflictions) and endure. In this manner, we are being led by the nose because of it and still unaware, totally useless. Animals are just the same, when you go towards the animal, the dog will just dash towards and start to bite you. Aren’t we just the same? He angered you and you in turn made a commotion, aren’t you just like an animal? “Real man” are all like that, this is what we really need to recognize, such people are termed as warriors. If you think that you are capable, you should know in which area you are capable. Small little afflictions, being affected by little afflictions and still very proud of yourself. Such people are really pitiful. For those who think that they are warriors, you need to grab hold of this!
