Suffering is not enough – monk

Life is filled with suffering, but it is also filled with many wonders, like the blue sky, the sunshine, the eyes of the baby. To suffer is not enough. We must also be in touch with the wonders of life. They are within us and all around us, everywhere, any time .

If we are not happy, if we are not peaceful, We cannot share peace and happiness with others, even those we love. those who live under the same roof. If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace.
Do we need special effort to enjoy the beauty of the blue sky? Do we have to practice to be able to enjoy it? No, we just enjoy it. Each second, each minute of our lives can be like this.Wherever we are, any time, we have the capacity to enjoy the sunshine, the presence of each other, even the sensation of our breathing. We don’t need to go to china to enjoy the blue sky. We don’t have to travel into the future to enjoy our breathing. We can be in touch with these things right now. It would be pity if we are only aware of suffering.

We are so busy we hardly have time to look at the people we love, even in our own household, and to look at ourselves. Society is organised in a way that even when we have some leisure time, we don’t know how to use it to get black in touch with ourselves. We have millions of ways to lose this precious time- we turn on the TV or pick up the telephone, or start the car and go somewhere. We are not used to being with ourselves, and we act as if we don’t like ourselves and are trying to escape from ourselves.

Meditation is to be aware of what is going on- in our bodies, in our feelings, in our minds, and in the world.If a child smile, if a adult smile, that is very important. If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we but everyone will profit from it. This is most basic kind of peace work.

Thanks to monk “Thich Nath Hanh” for such a beautiful lines in his book.

This is place where I put my random words about my perception, thoughts into very short post. It can range from daily life to philosophy to technology. I saw a lot of things in my short span of life, continuous failure to intense pain. I love to meet new people, see new culture despite I am an introvert person, and if I open with you then it will be fun. In my early stage of adulthood I read a lot of books, now I am little more inclined towards outdoor activity. I have tremendous believe in love and trust for the people. Hope you will find these very short post worth in your life. "I am not perfect in one but good in many"
