How to Escape Suffering from Acne

Recommended Posts

You can take steps to increase the chances of your own survival or of anything else, but...

- Lose your pride because everything you've achieved has required luck.

- Break all your attachments (to your body, to your looks, to your health, etc.) because ultimately, they're all out of your control; nothing is reliable.

- Don't assign meaning to anything; meaning is purely speculative.

- Don't form any expectations about anything; nothing can be taken for granted.

The more comfortable your life is and the more potential it has for being comforable in the future, the more you'll want to keep playing games and distract yourself. But the more self-admiration you have and the more you value your life, the farther you have to fall and the farther you will fall because our destiny is death.

More distraction leads to greater pleasure of certain kinds but makes you vulnerable to suffering. It's up to you which path to choose--whether to hang on or let go. The less you value your life though, the easier it is to let go.
