If the ways of the world torment your mind try to understand this which I repeat. To understand this is not easy but it may help:
The thought is the reality, the act only an illusion.*
Hence, what one perceives to be happening is not happening although people are thinking it.
*Note: This is like a cherry from a fruit cake whose true quality can often only be appreciated in the context of the taste and texture of the whole cake. The Milk Is White is such a ‘cake’.
