We have been fooled, beyond the carefully balanced innate view we need to participate in the human realm, into thinking that the inner bases have spirituality, holiness or will provide something that they are not capable of providing.
Therefore, we should not blame our innate view, though in most philosophies and practices, this is exactly what is done. Perhaps we should begin to disrespect it cautiously because our actual dilemma is not the fault of the innate view. The innate view has allowed us to participate in this human realm for a very long time, but once we began to think that it could provide us something that it cannot, we were wrong.
