Humen suffering is usually linked to “extremism”. This means that a human has veered into one of two extreme reactions to the world surrounding him.
These two evils are FEAR and GREED.
FEAR is “I don’t want”, a denial of reality in favor of withdrawing from life and building barriers between yourself and reality.
GREED is “I want”, a desire to acquire things material or nonmaterial from life for the sole purpose of personal enjoyment, thus building a wall keeping the supposedly “undeserving” from enjoying “your” stuff.
One must walk the MIDDLE ROAD, always cognizant of reality and the interconnectedness of all things. Since Dheghemy mandates interacting with reality as it actually is, the barriers created by extreme denial or extreme selfish acquisition must be destroyed. One must not be afraid of reality nor seek to exploit it for selfish gain. One must always be cognizant of how one’s choices affect the world around him. Extremism always has a negative effect.
