Consumed by Your Senses

Updated: Jul 28, 2020

"There is danger for the eye in seeing too clearly, danger for the ear to hearing too sharply and danger to the heart from caring too greatly. Indeed, it is dangerous to use any of our faculties. If these dangers are not dealt with, then disaster after disaster will ensue. To turn back from this to the original state takes much effort and time, but people consider these faculties as their greatest treasure, isn't that sad! As a result, there is constant destruction of states and endless massacre of the people, while no one knows how to look into how this happened."

[P 222 from The Book of Chuang Tzu, Penguin Classics, 2006]
