ලෝකයේ කිසිම අගයක් නැත. මිනිසා විසින් එම ලෝකයට අගයක් දී ඇත.
හැම විටම නැති දේ අගේ. ඇති දේ නොඅගේ. මන්ද? මිනිසා සතුව ඇති ශක්තිය වැය කිරීමට ඇති කැමැත්ත.
සැනසිල්ල කියා යමක් ඇතයි සිතීම ම දුක්බරය. එය තේරුම් ගත කල ජීවිතයේ දුක දුරු වේ.
ලොව පහළ වූ සත්ත්වයන් අතර සැප විඳීමට කෑදරම සත්ත්වයා මිනිසා ය. එනමුත් ලොව වැඩිපුරම දුක් විඳින සත්ත්වයා මිනිසා නොවේද?
ජීවිතයට ජීවිතය ලබා දෙන ආශ්වාදය ජීවිතය නැති කිරීමටද හේතු වේ.
