Desperation Brings Out The Yearning For Liberation

Usually When our lives are smooth and days are good, we will say, “I am happy with what I have now. I am happy. I do not need anyone to teach me any philosophies to be happy. I am fine.”

And when impermanence strikes, we lost the things that we liked and cherished, then we will say, “Can anyone please tell me why is life so miserable and please tell me where can I find happiness that doesn’t change and disappear?”

When someone tells us about non-attachment and letting go, we will say, “I knew already. I don’t need someone to teach me how to let go. I am not attaching to anything.”

And when the things that we love has changed and disappeared, we will be in tears and are so angry. Then we will say, “Can somebody please teach me how to let go?”

Anyway that’s part of the learnings in life. We won’t like to hear about wise words when we think that we are happy and fine, but we will be longing for wise words when we are not happy and are not fine.

Desperation brings out the yearning for liberation.

We won't learn to be wise until we went through deep suffering.

Suffering is not a bad thing at all...
