Blessed2 Posted June 10, 2022 Share Posted June 10, 2022 At some point when the childhood came to end, and the teenage years began, I noticed that there is suffering. I noticed that pretty much me and everyone around me was suffering, and that it seemed really hard - even impossible, to not suffer. Grown ups around me, those who were supposed to be leading me and those who were supposed to teach me, were also suffering. No-one really seemed to be a 'true adult' - they seemed confused and lost, just like me. Yes, they were happy in some way, they weren't depressed or anything like that. But they still got angry, frustrated, sad, they were stressed out and fearful. I wasn't, and still am not, satisfied with this. I want to be truly happy, eternally and completely happy. Without any suffering. Without any fear or doubt. I want true paradise. It's not enough to me to be kinda happy, kinda enjoying my time (but still experiencing doubt and fear). There must be a better way. I am here, I exist, and there must be a way to exist without suffering. I cannot accept that this is as good as it gets - it doesn't seem logical to me. There must be a way. Otherwise this would be hell, and I don't understand how such hell could even exist, how and why would it come from nothing. Here's a list of questions: - Why is there suffering? - Why am I in this world? Why is there planet earth, people, time and space and death? Why is there experience, sound, colour, shape, feeling? - Is there truly a way out of suffering? Do you know this for certain? - What is the way? What should I do in order to find paradise?
