Suffering’s Core 

07/13/2016

​What is the root of suffering? 

Desire to be what you are not. 

What is the root desire? 

Well, it seems like 

it is the desire for completion, 

but at the root of this desire 

is actually the desire 

to divide and conquer.

It’s the mind that divides things up, 

creating lack 

and imagining that the very things 

it has separated out from itself 

will fill its void. 

But lack cannot be ended

by processes that inherently 

create lack. 

Given that 

nothing these processes of self 

do

can end lack, 

what do you do?
