Obscurations to wisdom are the various layers of conditioning and patterns that we have accumulated over time, that make us not ‘see’ what to adopt and what to discard.
All emotions are afflicted (except for peace). Whether on the positive or negative side of the scale; they all lead to ‘suffering’ (or discomfort if you will) at some point.
Once the agitation is gone, we can see clearly; we have the power to manifest that wisdom. We will know what actions to take to move towards true happiness.
