A question about our mind and the environment

We see so much turmoil in life yet we see alot of good outcomes is this the balance in human conditionings ?

  1. ‘Conditioning’ has a particular meaning in Buddhism, viz. ‘within the cycle of birth and death.’ There is the conditioned and the unconditioned.
  2. This level of existence is the most valuable because the admixture of pleasure and pain is conducive to progress. The reason there is pleasure and pain is because this realm is balanced between the heavens and hells:

" Rebirth as a human being is extraordinarily rare (SN 56.48). It is also extraordinarily precious, as its unique balance of pleasure and pain (SN 35.135) facilitates the development of virtue and wisdom to the degree necessary to set one free from the entire cycle of rebirths."

This is a normal position taken for granted in the suttas. MN 117 is divided into mundane (worldly rebirth) and transcendent right view. The Buddha frequently interacted with rich people obviously following mundane right view. The advice given is particularly relevant to western lay practitioners who tend to overestimate their position, such as AN 11.13.

In Theravada the focus is on one’s own awakening.

"“Conjecture about [the origin, etc., of] the world is an unconjecturable that is not to be conjectured about, that would bring madness & vexation to anyone who conjectured about it.”—AN 4.77
