The remedy results in serenity by teaching the means of letting go of what we crave, learning to live with what we hate and recognizing that we are not solid but the changing itself, the alienating separation that we mistakenly believed was the disease of life gives way to the natural flow of the great ground of being.

4. Names and forms (imputing things to have a reality that they do not actually have).
