Love and hate are both suffering, because of desire. Wanting is suffering; wanting not to have is suffering.
Even if you get what you want, it’s still suffering because once you’ve got it, you then live in the fear of losing it.
How are you going to live happily with fear?
A profound teaching from Ajahn Chah.
We need to deepen our understanding on “Impermanence of life.” Nothing is remain unchanged. Nothing is belong to us, even our deeply love and treasure “body”.
Can you control your body, e.g stop coughing, sneezing, sickness, pain, illness, headache, stomachache and etc?
It’s beyond your control, you are the “tenant” of your body.
We must learn to “letting go”.
