Here is my problem. I am around a lot of worldly people lately between work, school, and friends I've picked up from both these areas of my life. I'm not around Buddhists, and not around Tibetan Buddhists very much anymore. I have no problem with worldly people; they are just people. And while I love and care about some of these people, I have, in general, however, noticed a considerable increase in the 5 poisons in many of the people around me, in various aspects of their lives. What is going on? Is this just because this is the kali yuga age? Is the increase of power of negative and harmful spirits to blame? Are things going to shit out in the world, society breaking down too much? I certainly think they are. What do you guys think? Your input and feedback is appreciated.
Please bear in mind, no I am not a total renunciate, I understand that the 5 poisons are a part of life and that they will be around, I just happen to perceive an increase in them in the people I have been around, and frankly, it;'s a bit scary. Also, to some degree it has been true of myself, but I am working on that as best I can.
What do you guys think?
Your feedback is appreciated.
