The eight worldly attitude

It all comes down to love. Unconditional love includes everyone by excluding no one. To love your enemy takes guts. It takes courage. It takes humility. Genuine humility arises through insight. Insight is seeing things as they are, not how we want them to be, not how our preconceived ideas think they are. This takes brutal honesty free of the eight worldly attitudes expressed in four pairs of opposites: reputation and disgrace; praise and blame; gain and loss; and pleasure and pain. Unconditional love is beyond these worldly concerns. It is closer to reality, accessed through insight.
