“Life is Suffering”–First Noble Truth of Buddhism

The First Noble Truth of Buddhism is “Life Is Suffering.” Meaning that human nature is not perfect and neither is the world we live in. During our lifetime we are going to endure physical, emotional and spiritual suffering. I think we Westerns do ourselves a disservice when our Western Thought is that “Life is Happiness.” Meaning that we should not endure suffering and if we do it’s because we have done something wrong; we’ve made the wrong decisions or we’ve allowed the wrong person to come into our life. And when something DOES go wrong, we tend to focus on that one thing because Life is supposed to be Happiness. But I think we should switch that thought around, that life is going to be physically, emotionally and spiritually tough. If we do that, then when something truly AMAZING happens, we’ll focus on that amazing thing, and we’ll love that amazing thing…and our happiness at that particular moment will be tenfold.
