Translated from Tamil by my mother.
What is poison?
When we have something more than our needs it becomes poison. It can be power, wealth, love, hatred or even hunger.
When we do not accept impermanence it becomes fear.when we accept impermanence it becomes adventure.
When we are not ready to accept the goodness of others it becomes jealousy. When we start accepting it becomes a motivational force.
When we cannot bear things happening beyond our control it becomes anger. When we start accepting it becomes tolerance.
Not accepting others as they are turns into hatred. Unconditional acceptance becomes love.
