Dukkha : Laying Down the Burden

“Dukkha is the result of how we relate to reality. If we cling to what is impermanent, what is undependable, we cause our own suffering. Dukkha is not something that somebody else, the universe or whatever, puts on us, Dukkha is what we take up, we take up the Burden ourselves”.

“If we have the responsibility of this Dukkha, if we are creating our own suffering, well guess what, we have the choice to not do that, we have the choice to let go.”

“Once you realize that you have the power, once you realize that its not some external force that is causing you suffering, pain, once you realize that it’s you, and you are responsible for your own dukkha, then you give yourself the power to change that, to end that Dukkha.”
