Life's Problems and Suffering

  1. 1. 1 A Story For Reflection
  2. 2. 2 As I jumped off from the 11th Floor of the building … I saw the known loving couple in the 10th Floor hitting each other. “In life, there will be times of happiness and pleasure and times of sorrow and pain.”
  3. 3. 3 In the 9th Floor, I saw the usually tough and strong Peter crying… “No unenlightened being is free from the suffering that comes with existence …realizing this Truth is one step to spiritual wisdom.”
  4. 4. 4 In the 8th Floor, Ah Mei just found out her fiancee is sleeping with her best friend… “In life, sometimes things that you do not expect or want, happen and things that you wish for or want, do not happen …a realization of this helps one to cope and be more at peace with oneself.”
  5. 5. 5 In the 7th Floor, Dan is taking her daily anti- depression medicine… “The greater our ignorance and delusion, the more we will suffer mentally or psychologically.”
  6. 6. 6 In the 6th Floor, jobless Heng still buys 7 newspapers to search for a job every day. “Do we realize that there are more unfortunate ones in the world compared to us? When will we see things more clearly and count our Blessings?”
  7. 7. 7 In the 5th Floor, much respected Mr. Wong is trying his wife’s undergarment. “We may not know, but so many are tormented by psychological problems and aberrations.”
  8. 8. 8 In the 4th Floor, Rose is again fighting with the boyfriend. “When Compassion and Wisdom grow in us, we will suffer less from arguments, conflicts, quarrels and fights”.
  9. 9. 9 In the 3rd Floor, every day the old man is hoping someone would come by and pay him a visit. “So many in the world are suffering from the ‘Mental Dis-Ease’ of restlessness, boredom, remorse, guilt, worry, and loneliness.”
  10. 10. 10 In the 2nd Floor, Lily is still staring at the picture of her lost husband since half a year ago. “There is Suffering in old age, sickness and death … when there is realization of the inevitability of this, one can cope with life better and one can attain greater mental peace.”
  11. 11. 11 Before I jumped off from the building, I thought I was the most unlucky person. “In life, Right View and Attitude, Right Thought, Right Effort and the cultivation of Compassion and Wisdom will lessen our Suffering.”
  12. 12. 12 Now I just realized that everyone has their own problems and worries. “Every human being is subjected to the dualistic conditions of * Pleasure and Pain * Gain and Loss * Praise and Blame * Honor and Dishonor”
  13. 13. 13 After I had seen all these, I found out, in fact, I wasn’t that bad at all. “The Right Attitude and being able to see the way things really are in life, will lead us to more and more mental peace and freedom.”
  14. 14. 14 The people that I saw just now are looking at me now. “When there is Right Understanding of the Nature of Life and the mind is calm, mindful and clear, insight and wisdom arise and we would not resort to foolish actions.”
  15. 15. 15 I think after they see me now, they might feel they are not that bad after all. DUKKHA ( Suffering, Conflict, Problems, Unsatisfactoriness ) is inherent in Existence. There is a Spiritual Path out of this. Seek and Realize it.
  16. 16. 16 “What a Dream! Luckily it was not real. I learnt many Dhamma Lessons. All in Samsara have Dukkha. So many have more suffering than me. Life is precious. One should not take one’s life. We can walk the Dhamma Way to end all Dukkha.
  17. 17. 17 May we walk the Noble 8-Fold Way diligently to attain Happiness, Peace and end all misery. With Metta, Bro. Oh Teik Bin Life’s problems and suffering The End
