The path is easy and simple: avoid harm, do good, and purify the mind.
What is difficult and complicated is to continue suffering. Going against our very nature, fixated on the lies of separation and supremacy, acting out of attachment, aversion, and indifference, and reaping pain is difficult.
The path reveals our inherent Buddha Nature. This Buddha Nature is not a seed, a potential, or a possibility, but rather a complete reality. There is nothing to build; nothing to elaborate.
In truth, we only have two problems: wrong views and afflicted emotions. And they are incidental —that is, they are not in our nature.
When we avoid harm, we remove the veils of the afflicted emotions. When we do good, we cultivate peace. When we purify the mind, we discard wrong views.
