vertical line An unconditioning awakens actuality,

From actuality; things are just as they are,

When one sees things clearly or seeing things without choices,

He or she just acts,

And his or her action is right action.

vertical line IF NOTHING IS FOUND THERE TO DELIGHT IN,...

The Buddha once said this to the Bhikkhus:

"Bhikkhus, as to the source through which perceptions

and notions tinged by mental proliferation beset a man:

if nothing is found there to delight in, welcome and hold to,

this is the end

of the underlying tendency to lust,

of the underlying tendency to aversion,

of the underlying tendency to views,

of the underlying tendency to doubt,

of the underlying tendendy to conceit,

of the underlying tendency to desire for being,

of the underlying tendency to ignorance;

this is the end

of resorting to rods and weapons,

of quarrels, brawls, disputes, recrimination, malice and false speech;

here these evil unwholesome states cease without remainder."

From "Madhupindika Sutta" of the Buddha

translated by Bhikkhu Nanamoli and Bhikkhu Bodhi

The end complete with no more beginnings.
