Ignorance obscures the mind’s enlightened qualities. One way that ignorance obscures the wisdom mind is through negative emotions like anger, jealousy, and desire, which keep the mind from remaining in the natural state.
When we are under the control of negative emotions, we simply cannot have a peaceful state of mind. We find ourselves worried and uneasy, floating in an ocean of ignorance, where we are tossed about by waves of resentment, fear and attachment.
It is important to remember that ignorance can be removed; it is not the fundamental nature of the mind. If we understand the causes and effects of ignorance and wisdom, we can work to remove confusion and bring out the inherent enlightened qualities.
