Everything is as it is. It has no name other than the name we give it. It is we who call it something; we give it a value. We say this thing is good or it’s bad, but in itself, the thing is only as it is. It’s not absolute; it’s just as it is. People are just as they are.
~Ajahn Sumedho, “The Mind and the Way”

(I must admit this paper was not an easy read…)
