The title is very good.
Buddhist tradition is very huge. Some tradition see some kind of thoughts as poison. For example, anger, jealousy, are seen as poison and destructive. So, the practitioner at that tradition try their best to get rid of it as if they are enemy.
But another Buddhist tradition, value anger, jealousy, like a diamond. According to that tradition anger and jealosy for example are not poison, but they are primordial wisdom. Because we misunderstand them, we react to them, we get caught by it and we do so many negative things. Another type of misunderstanding is because we don't know the nature of anger and jealousy, we try to change the mind. We try to change something negative to positive. However, according to this tradition, if you look into any thoughts, whether you claim them as negative, positive, or neutral, all of them always have 1 same nature.
They are lack of self, they are clear, and they manifest freely without any obstruction. The story is different. Each thought bring you it's own story. But, all of them always and always have the same nature.
Because they are having the same nature, they are actually showing you the true nature of not only thoughts, but everything in this universe is having he same nature.
The nature of thoughts, which are up and down, coming and going, have the same nature with the formation of tree, how it pass away, etc.
So, by looking into that nature, instead of get rid of it, we finally will understand the true nature of reality, which is empty, clear, and manifest without any obstruction.
Anger for example is very powerful. When it arise, the energy is very intense. When someone get angry, he is absolutely awake and ready to fire the bullet. If he understand the nature of anger, instead of firing te bullet, te arising and te disappearance of anger, give him a very strong impression and understanding about no self.
The worse the thoughts and the more powerful they are, the better they are.
So in this tradition, they are working inside the poison itself. Instead of getting rid of that poison, they use that poison to go further.
However, this method cannot work for someone who has the strong view that anger and jealousy is absolutely negative.
The story is poison, but nature is not. So, this tradition work directly on the nature of poison, just to find out further that actually this poison is the best medicine.
They don't scare with everything, because everything is the best medicine.
I am not here nor there.
I am not right nor wrong.
I do not exist neither non-exist.
I am not I nor non-I.
I am not in samsara nor nirvana.
To All Buddhas, I bow down for the teaching of emptiness. Thank You!
