Direto do Século Treze
Straight from the Thirteenth Century

WHAT IS POISON?
Anything besides what we need is poison. It can be power, laziness, food, ego, ambition, fear, anger or whatever.
WHAT IS FEAR?
The non-acceptance of uncertainty. If we accept uncertainty, it becomes adventure.
WHAT IS ENVY?
The non-acceptance of the other’s well-being. If we accept it, we become inspired.
WHAT IS ANGER?
The non-acceptance of something that is beyond our control. If we accept it, it becomes tolerance.
WHAT IS HATRED?
The non-acceptance of people as they are. If we accept them unconditionally, then it becomes love.
