Attachment to one's ease, one's opinions, one's "truth"

« This Dhamma that I have attained is deep, hard to see, hard to realize, peaceful, refined, beyond the scope of conjecture, subtle, to-be-experienced by the wise. But this generation delights in attachment, is excited by attachment, enjoys attachment. For a generation delighting in attachment, excited by attachment, enjoying attachment, this/that conditionality and dependent co-arising are hard to see. This state, too, is hard to see: the resolution of all fabrications, the relinquishment of all acquisitions, the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding. And if I were to teach the Dhamma and if others would not understand me, that would be tiresome for me, troublesome for me. » — ayacana sutta (SN 6.1)

The Buddha understood well the difficulty to teaching something new to people. If it's new, it's uneasy, and if it's uneasy, it's less likely to be considered true… it's likely to be discarded, out of laziness, habits, tendencies to perpetuate crap (i.e. karma ).


On the share from yesterday (gplus.wallez.name/5qqc4DgxoTq), it'd be described as « we imagine things and people we're familiar with, or fond of, as better. »
