To bring about this result we need to understand how we create suffering in our own lives and that of others. We need to understand what causes these states of mind and feelings to arise and when we understand this clearly enough we then can understand how to make them cease. With even more clarity of what the process is we can stop them from arising altogether.

Just as if you had a seed and that seed (irritation etc) would grow into a tree (anger etc) if it had the right conditions such as soil (your mind), water (your thoughts), fertilizer (desire), and heat from the sun (inappropriate attention). If you took away any of these elements the seed would never grow and eventually rot and die.

But the same can also be said for healthy emotions such as unconditional love, joy for others success, compassion and an equanimous, unjudging mind.

Just as if you had a seed and that seed (caring etc) would grow into a tree (unconditional love etc) if it had the right conditions such as soil (your mind), water (your thoughts), fertilizer (desire) and heat from the sun (appropriate attention). If you didn’t take away any of these elements but added balanced amount of all of them, the seed (caring etc) would grow into a big healthy tree (unconditional love etc) and provide shelter for anyone who wished to sit under it.
