Ricard: “Unhappiness is altogether different, being the way in which we experience our suffering.”
.
.
.
Life has suffering on this journey. It is unavoidable.
.
How do we experience our suffering?
.
If we judge our suffering it grows. What fires together wires together!
.
Viktor Frankl in “Man’s Search for Meaning” describes the satisfaction felt while enduring their suffering without complaint.
.
Life brings us challenges whether we are rich or poor, common man or elitist.
.
Some judge challnges as unfair, deep seated tests of our worthiness, a door to possible loss.
.
Others accept life’s challenges as challenges, bringing perspective to their journey.
.
Suffering is inevitable, unhappiness a choice.
.
Our path can limit suffering to the suffering itself and no more.
.
Suffering can grow, consuming us, dominating our thought process.
.
Our mindfulness practice enables us to focus, to let go, to see our suffering in reality.
.
We can carry happiness inside us when challenges abound or even when suffering exists.
