Do you find that awareness in this way brings you happiness?              When there is understanding of what things really are, there will be more wholesomeness in our life. There will be less clinging to the concept of “self” when we perform good deeds, and thus good deeds  will be purer. We do not refrain from evil things because we have to follow certain rules, but because we have more understanding as to which causes bring which effects. The right understanding of what things are will very gradually eradicate unwholesomeness. When there is less unwholesomeness there will be more peace in life.
