BEST WISHES

Best Wishes

The cause of suffering and dissatisfaction
is a mind filled with a muddy concept of self.

We transform the mud through spiritual awakening,
thus realising the activity of a Bodhisattva – a well wisher.

And they don’t all look like this …

    The effect of suffering is caused by the unacceptance of life as it actually is. If you accept unconditionally all of life as it has been, as it is now, and how it shall be, then what is there to suffer from? And by acceptance I don’t mean you are powerless to do anything, rather, all your power begins with the acceptance of reality as it is, then you can apply your attention/energy towards creating the life you want instead of it dissipating in the illusions of how it
    should, would, or could have been.
    How you feel as you go through life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to what happens to you. Unacceptance is resistance, to resist is to suffer, and in reality it doesn’t matter if you resist life because no matter how hard you try to fight it, to resist it, you cannot undo what’s been done. The past is over and unchangeable. The past is one second ago, can you go back and change one second ago? Then how much less so one day or ten years ago? Thus, accept now, or suffer until you do.

      Hello Ken,
      Nice to meet you.
      As the you and the Borg say, “Resistance is futile!” 😀

      Yes, acceptance is realising that the moment now is created by our past – cause and effect – which some call karma, and that is our teacher.

      We can however, make do (accept) and mend (bring back to balance). We mend by not reacting. In re-enact, and go round in circles.

      Through realisation of our true nature we can change the future, and be happy. That realisation is that we are pure consciousness and already happy.

      Whatever happens to us is the effect from our past. When we don’t re-enact, the power of karma dissipates. We become at ease with everything.

      It is all in the mind that we suffer, and so realise that suffering never existed, suffering just feels real because the way in which we relate to everything.

      If I may speak from a buddhist view point. There are two truths – absolute and relative.

      We are absolute pure consciousness. When we ignore our original nature, we start relating, identifying, judge, react to everything and so we (a collection of relative ideas) suffer.

      Best wishes,
      Tony
