Many people choose what they want to hear or see. They look beyond the unpleasant as to not spoil their view. They are deaf to the needs of others. Their senses and their lack of sense lead them astray. This is truly a great handicap. They ignore the wisdom of Tao and seek their own way which leads them to dead ends and unhappiness. You can only overlook the distressing so long and then it will eventually find you and stare into your eyes.
