Passion can drive us to do incredible things, but it can also lead to dangerous and destructive behavior if it is not kept in check. Hatred can be a powerful emotion that can lead to a lack of empathy and an inability to forgive. Folly can lead to mistakes and bad decisions that can have long-lasting and damaging consequences. Greed can be a powerful force that can lead to a disregard for the needs of others, and an insatiable appetite for more and more. All of these emotions can be powerful and destructive forces if left unchecked, and Buddha’s words are a reminder to be aware of the potential dangers of these powerful emotions.
