Dharma of the Day

self importance is a root cause of suffering

both for the self

and the others you inflict it upon

your self image is a pack of lies

insistence upon its reality

causes suffering and impedes evolution

if you are sure you are not being separative

then in your conviction

you most certainly are

unless omniscience is a quality you own

behaving as if you have the consciousness of a God

is inconsistent with reality

the wisdom of humanity

is an oxymoron

in nearly every case

pride and arrogance are also

root causes of suffering

they stem from the same germ

the desire for and enactment of revenge

not only causes dual suffering

it is one of the most karmically damaging things a being can do

clinging in all its forms suffocates

better to release a dove from a cage

than to watch it wither and die

living a redemptive life

not only eases suffering

but gains karmic merit

whilst karmic debt persists

enlightenment is not possible

and rebirth consequently inevitable

power over another being is an illusion

such illusory power is corporeal

and therefore has no reality

at the level of the dreamer there is no such thing

the primal root of all suffering

is individuating identity upon carnation

all beings resent this

few have sufficient knowledge to see this

emptying the cup of karma removes all suffering

this is the way to Bodhi mind

and eventual liberation

actions beget karma

redemptive action works this off

there is no other way
