Buddha taught that the object of our senses are a trap; the Venerable Phra Bodhinyanathera taught that animals are caught in the hunters trap by their desires, and that if we are attached to our senses we are just like the fish caught on a hook.
A man comes walking along a road. He is very thirsty from his journey and is craving for a drink of water. He stops at a place beside the road and asks for a drink. The owner of the water says, “You can drink this water if you like; the color is good, the smell is good, the taste is good, but if you drink it you will become ill. I must tell you this beforehand, it’ll make you sick enough to die.” The thirsty man does not listen. He votes for Trump anyway.
