Life can be really painful sometimes.
The Buddha’s first noble truth is “Dukkha” — which, roughly translated, means “everything is garbage.”
There’s anxiety, there’s depression, there’s discomfort, there’s stress… there’s loneliness, heartache, sickness and death. Oy vey!
But see, this is exactly why meditation was invented. This is why meditation has been practiced by millions of people, for over 3500 years. Because life isn’t always a bunch of rainbows and butterflies. And even when it is, your scumbag brain won’t always allow you to enjoy it.
Meditation won’t stop you from dying — or from having heartache, anxiety, depression, and loneliness, for that matter — but it will allow you to form a new relationship with life. Instead of being a victim of the stupid garbage that life tends to throw at you, you’ll become an amused, curious, and fascinated observer. To put it simply, you’ll be a happier, healthier, more well-adjusted human being.
