VWP 015: Practical Peaceful Living – Part 2

Practical Peaceful LivingPeacefulness? The bottom line is that we seek one desire after another after another. We have the mistaken belief that obtaining just one more thing will make us happy. Or looking a certain way will make me happy. Or this house will make me happy. Or my life has to look thus and so or I can’t be happy. These thoughts are the result of judging and moralizing our choices in an absolute way. This is good, this is bad. This is right and that is wrong.Don't set up this cycle of something being wrong or bad and therefore we need something else and something else and something else and we are never satisfied. The job is never good enough, the house is never good enough, our body is never good enough, our partner is never good enough and on and on and on. We create our own suffering.Let's take some personal responsibility for our happiness and peace.Podcast TopicsReview of “Life is Suffering”2nd Noble Truth – Desire is the cause of suffering or the start of DukkhaDef
