- Contemplate how this world is filled with a variety of potential life experiences. Look at telescopic photographs of stars and galaxies and consider the kinds of life that might be out there. Imagine that there must also be innumerable other dimensions of life outside the physical universe. With this immense vision in mind, contemplate how and why you ended up in human form, on this particular planet, and in your very specific and unique combination of circumstances.
- Recognize that the main cause of your suffering is the seed of anger in you and that the other person is only a secondary cause.
- We suffer because we want life to be different from what it is, trying to make pleasurable what is painful, make solid what is fluid, make permanent what is changing.
