【Intent to liberation – Recognize that you are ill 】
So here now is an analogy. It is like when one is ill, one has to feel the suffering of this illness. So you will want to know what is the cause for this illness ? We have to know to eliminate the cause of this illness and to seek elimination of this illness. That's when you will seek for the medicine. That's when you will rely on the remedy. Similarly, [recognize that] this is suffering, from this suffering we find the cause - the truth of origin. Then from this cause, we can see that it can be eliminated - the truth of cessation. And then, how do you eliminate it becomes the truth of the path. This is what we should really do, "Recognize that you are ill." Next, [know] what you should eliminate, [know] what you should cultivate. This is the origin of suffering, which is what you should eliminate! Next, this is the cessation, which is what you should attain! In order to attain the truth of cessation, what should we do? You will need to cultivate this path!
