THE BUDDHA

One popular human strategy for dealing with difficulty is autosuggestion, when something nasty pops up, you convince yourself it is pleasant rather than unpleasant.  The Buddha’s tactic is quite the reverse.  Rather than hide it or disguise it, the Buddha’s teaching urges you to examine it to death.  Buddhism advises you not to implant feelings that you don’t really have or avoid feelings that you do have.  If you are miserable you are miserable; this is the reality, that is what is happening, so confront that.  Look it square in the eye without flinching.  When you are having a bad time, examine the badness, observe it mindfully, study the phenomenon and learn its mechanics.  The way out of a trap is to study the trap itself, learn how it is built.  You do this by taking the thing apart piece by piece.  The trap can’t trap you if it has been taken apart and is in pieces.  The result is FREEDOM.

    1. Donna: I apologize for not responding sooner. I took a look at your web page & was surprised to see you have interest in the NWO (New World Order), the Illuminati who want to taker over the world. I have been studying them inside and out for the last year and a half. I’ve warned so many people about this they think I’m nuts. I’m not nuts I have a RN BSN/ BS IT. It’s going to get ugly real soon. UN Agenda 21 was signed by George Bush Sr. in 1992 along with over a 100 different signing it also which gave them an outline. Rex 84 Set up over 800 concentration camps that are now fully maned and operational. There just waiting for us to be admitted.
