No Fixing Samsara

Why rage against kings and presidents when you only defile your own mind? What of lasting good can you do when you commit violence against your own heart?

If tomorrow you could transform the world into a utopia could you then stop the explosion of the sun? Could you stop a wayward comet from plunging into the earth? Better to stop the kilesas and put an end to this round of suffering once and for all. There’s no fixing samsara.
