Sticking One’s Head In The Sand
Sticking one’s head in the sand
is refusing to look at unpleasant facts,
despite their influence on our life.
The first noble truth of the Buddha
is to recognise that we are dissatisfied and unhappy.
We are, in fact, suffering.
If, however, we only look for ‘good news’,
we will be unable to recognise the cause of that suffering –
an attachment to me and mine.
This is the opposite to Dharma intention,
and negates the first noble truth.
