There are two kinds of things that I talk to you about. One is for worldly things; I advise you to be filial, loyal and patriotic, etc. However, if I don't talk about worldly matters, there's really nothing to talk about. The Dharma needs virtually no spoken words. Or should I just sit here and tell you, "It's OK, suit yourself. It's OK to do anything. Never mind the ethical conduct, because there is nothing." You know what I mean? But I can't do that, because you have yet to reach this level. Sometimes, I observe that the world is in great misery, but people can't escape. They are bound very tightly by their minds. Do you understand what I am saying? (Understand.) Really? (Really.) Because these things are... (Abstract.) Abstract. OK, that's right. Therefore, preconceptions sometimes hurt us a lot, and make us lose a lot of good things. I am talking about worldly aspects; not spiritual aspects. Not yet; too many preconceptions. Our eyes, ears, smell and tongue, all deceive us; they are really deceptive.
