Illusory Advice: Secondary causes

"External factors spark patterns of perception you do not know you have. Life is a little like walking through a minefield – you never know when you may step on something—a circumstance of your life—that will explode a programmed pattern of perception. If the cause is not encountered the reaction will not occur. One of the principles of the monastic path is to regulate the secondary causes—in terms of life circumstances—as much as possible to avoid triggering unhelpful reactions that deepen patterning. The tantric path however says: ‘Bring it all on!’ so that you have the opportunity to transform distorted perception and response into enlightened perception and response. "
