"In practice, there is actually no excuse for kleshas. Because practice, finally, especially the cultivation of bodhichitta described here in our text, is choiceless. You cultivate it because there is no other option. There is nothing else you can do. So I guess some of this training comes down to stopping ourselves from looking for excuses. We are very clever at rationalizing things that we know we shouldn’t do when there is in fact no real reason to do them to begin with. And with these evasions, of course, we deceive ourselves." - Karmapa
