Incorrect Consideration and Emptiness

With “unawareness,” often translated as “ignorance,” we either do not know how things actually exist, or we believe incorrectly that our projections of impossible ways of existing correspond to reality. With the discriminating awareness of voidness, we understand the total absence of anything that corresponds to the impossible ways of existing that we project. Disturbing emotions and disturbing attitudes arise from our unawareness based on incorrect consideration. We incorrectly consider non-static phenomena to be static, suffering to be happiness, what is unclean to be clean, and what is not self to be the self.
