Afflictions are like a floating cloud

Afflictions themselves are like a floating cloud, unpredictable, but if you keep attaching to it and analysing it, it will always exist.
The Buddha once taught Rahula: “Rāhula, develop meditation that is like the earth; for when you develop meditation that is like the earth, arisen agreeable and disagreeable contacts will not invade your mind and remain. Just as people throw clean things and dirty things, excrement, urine, spittle, pus, and blood on the earth, and the earth is not repelled, humiliated, and disgusted because of that, so too, when the reverie arises, don’t be entangled or enslaved by it. ”
~ Gyalwai Nyugu
