Aversion, my friend, makes you blind, makes you sightless, makes you ignorant. It brings about the cessation of discernment, is conducive to trouble, and does not lead to Unbinding.
– from the Channa Sutta
You don’t need a Buddha around to point out desire, it’s obvious enough, but one thing I hadn’t much realized before was aversion and the huge role it plays in my life. Basically, I’m just not very good at getting things done, especially when it’s important!
