Life is Suffering, What Are you Gonna Do About it?

in #personal4 years ago (edited)


What's up everyone? I'm new to this community and felt this video was a good starting point. The main point is that life in this physical reality is centered around suffering. Experiencing this reality through the perspective of separateness constantly makes us work towards becoming whole. However, in order to do that, struggle and suffering is typically a prerequisite. Many people avoid feelings of struggle because it's scary. Hell, it feels like dying because you're dropping who you are and immersing yourself into the mysterious nature of the unknown. However, fear of death is ultimately fear of life. Once you understand that suffering and death is inevitable, you do everything in life to assure you don't die with regrets. Your purpose in this life and willingness to work for it helps you overcome the burden of suffering.
