This three-fold formula of view, practice and conduct is not just spoken of in the religious context. Any kind of work we undertake also has a view, a practice and conduct that underpins it. And not only positive actions have their own view, practice and conduct, but negative ones as well. In the view, practice and conduct of a thief, for example, the view would be the decision not to work or do business, but instead to steal from other people. The meditation of a thief would be thinking constantly, time and time again about how they are going to go about stealing from other people. The conduct of a thief would be actually going and stealing the property of others.
What we need to do is abandon incorrect view, meditation and conduct and instead cultivate positive view, meditation and conduct.
