“Generally speaking, one begins by identifying those factors which lead to happiness, and those factors which lead to suffering. Having done this, one gradually eliminates those factors which lead to suffering and cultivates those which lead to happiness.”
Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
Let’s see… Factors which lead to suffering? The Ego. Desires. Fear.
Factors which lead to happiness: Compassion. Love. Selflessness.
Now that we’ve identified them, the actual elimination and cultivation can begin.
And this is the story of Life.
