There is no thing or situation which can make us suffer

Posted by Adi pe Decembrie 26, 2010

The experiences, such as birth, death, and disease, may be illusion, but the suffering they produce is not. It is real. The grief we feel at the death of a loved one is real, even if the death is not. Certainly, illusion should be dispelled, but that will not take care of the deeper problem: our capacity for suffering. It is foolish and callous to bully those who suffer by expounding on the unreality of that to which they are reacting. For there is no thing or situation which can make us suffer. Suffering is our reaction to those things. When we reach the state where we no longer react–for pleasure is as destructive as pain–then we will be free.

    Cum poate o reactie la iluzie sa nu fie iluzie ?

      Interesanta intrebarea!
      Intr-adevar, autorul a folosit imprudent acelasi termen cu 2 sensuri diferite in acelasi context.
      Cu siguranta ca se referea ca suferinta este la fel de reala pt cel afectat cat este de iluzorie moartea pentru cel eliberat!
