“A truth that many people never understand is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer, because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt… There is suffering in life, and there are defeats.

When sunrise lights the soul and illusion just dissolves,
Countless bitter tears are forever lost in fresh rainfall.
“The desire of a thoughtlessly living man grows like a creeper.
Drifts from one life to another, like a monkey looking for fruit in the forest.
When one is overcome by this wretched, clinging desire in the world,
one’s sorrows increase like grass growing up after a lot of rain.
But when one masters this wretched desire, which is so hard to overcome,
then one’s sorrows just drop off, like a drop of water…”
