ALL THINGS ARE JUST AS THEY ARE
Things don't cause suffering in themselves. Attachment to them is the cause of suffering.
Everything is what it is. However, as soon as we have a preference 'it' is changed.
The 'thing' can be all-things, nothing, neither all or none, and both all and none - simultaneously. How we perceive 'it' creates the result - our reality of 'it'.
Bring this awareness to the forefront; use it wisely, and the illusion of suffering will dissolve.
HOW TO SUCCEED ?
Those who follow the path will reach the point of realization; they cannot fail!
While those who live a life of folly, blindly chasing that which is already present, shall wander aimlessly until their final day.
In order to succeed, one must set their compass and use the map within, then fulfillment shall arise of its own accord. Be prepared to loosen your grip, to surrender and be drawn forth.
Embrace this journey of unknown, for herein the answer is to be found.
