there is a nice quote from Saritputto - Pali Canon- that says:"The objectice changes of matter are being felt subjectively as suffering."
Suffering stopps when matter doesn´t matter any more.

The 4 Noble truths teach us that suffering can be eliminated, by eliminating the causes of suffering. IMHO there are a lot of causes of suffering, not only the usual suspects, like desire and craving. But eliminating the causes of suffering is no easy matter and takes time, the bright side is if we eliminate some of the causes of suffering, we may well see an appreciable reduction in our amount of suffering, which gives us faith to continue on the path.
18 years ago I made one of the most important decisions of my life and entered a local Cambodian Buddhist Temple as a temple boy and, for only 3 weeks, an actual Therevada Buddhist monk. I am not a scholar, great meditator, or authority on Buddhism, but Buddhism is something I love from the Bottom of my heart. It has taught me sobriety, morality, peace, and very importantly that my suffering is optional, and doesn't have to run my life. I hope to give back what little I can to the Buddhist community, sincerely former monk John
