The Three Disturbances
(adapted)

The chronic disturbances of people
separate us from living a truly illuminated and happy
life.

These disturbances relate to the
three primary functional dimensions of the human individual
– the physical, the emotional, and the mental.

The chronic disturbances of the
physical being are reactive contractions, or recoil from
life, in the form of disease and general ill health, pain,
toxemia, enervation, and obsessive desire for the
consolations of food, sex, company, and the objective goods
of human existence.

The chronic disturbances of the
emotional being are reactive contractions, or recoil from
love, in the form of fear, shame, sorrow, guilt, anger,
jealousy, and so forth.

The chronic disturbances of the
mental being are reactive contractions, or recoil from a
prior presumption of our true nature, recoil from reality,
recoil into doubt, deluded thinking, obsessive mentalizing,
and all the consolations of knowledge in relation to
experience.

Therefore, the way of truly
understanding ones true nature is a matter of responsibility
for all of the chronic disturbances, so that there may not
be the slightest difference between us and that condition
that is reality and truth.
