is not what has been predicted by Gautama Buddha. The present manifestation of
70 to 80 years as a human being by a pessimistic can be termed as a life of suffering.
What of those who enjoy the life to its full... never looking back at the negativities
They think positive...
they drink positive... they live positive. Life is supposed to be
lived as an optimist. God Almighty was not a fool to have dumped
his creation into a life of suffering. That was not to be!
are part of life and in absence of sufferings... how would one enjoy
the fruits of achievements. To shape a metal... we first heat it...
then beat it (with a hammer) and then put it in a bucket full of
cold water (the feeling of happiness). Only then the metal shapes
into a beautiful sword. In the journey of life devoid of sufferings...
life would become meaningless.
is primarily governed by the doctrine of karma. If we desire minimum sufferings
in life... we need to perform our karma accordingly. If we act sinful... hope
of happiness would be meaningless. It cannot be! We have to suffer for the sins
committed by us. There is no escape whatsoever. Life always goes full circle.
We always need to follow the golden rule principle, "we should always do
unto others what we expect them to do unto us".
whole of Buddhism... life being treated as full of sufferings is the biggest lie
in itself. It is full of ignorance. Gautama Buddha for almost 80 years of his
life suffered in search of God. Ultimately he landed with the teaching, that life
is full of sorrows! It was his personal interpretation.
the contrary Mahavira, the 24th Tirthankara of Jainism who came about 77 years
before Gautama Buddha gained enlightenment at the age of 42. His perception of
life was crystal clear. He was a coolheaded person. He never indulged in personal
message to the community was first become a Mahavira... than preach! Unlike the
spiritual masters and the religious teachers of today... who completely devoid
of wisdom try to impart rather impose personal interpretations on the ignorant
accumulate lot of wealth but what of the next manifestation and the Day of Judgment.
We must never indulged in activities that effects our next manifestation in a
negative way. We must always try to improve upon our balance of karma so that
the next manifestation our soul atman takes is a step higher than the present.
are never afraid of death. Once we realize that death is also a part of life...
the fear of death vanishes forever. If we truly desire living healthy life...
we need to remain optimistic throughout the life. There is so much in store for
mankind to discover and unveil... the house of God is always full of treasures
