No matter where you go to in the world, in every single culture, in every single language people suffer because of one thing... They BELIEVE their thoughts. And the thoughts that cause suffering are the same all over the world... thoughts like "The world needs to be saved". "I need __________ to be happy". " _________ should or shouldn't be this way". We can not help but believe the thoughts we think until we stop and question them. When we question our thoughts, we find the lack of truth in the thoughts that make us unhappy and so we find we can no longer maintain the ones that cause us to suffer. And that is our first step towards a happy life.
