Meditation is like riding a bicycle because it always hurts when you crash.
Disciples, this I declare to you: All conditioned things are subject to disintegration – strive on untiringly for your liberation.

Dude, thats hilarious
This is the great gift that alcoholism and addiction confer on
us. The suffering of craving is raised to such a high pitch that it becomes
impossible to ignore. Many who are not addicts or alcoholics can continue
in a state of low level anxiety and dis-ease for their entire lives without ever
having a clue about its cause.

Just that! *smile*...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ...

BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Punna Sutta Nate sante baram sokham _()_
