The words of Buddha are not singularly unique. Life at this moment is for most a suffering. The suffering as a thought is also not singular. On a individual level of thought you can adjust the view of life as you would like. For this writer, in my personal experience I have found many with like thoughts and emotions, along with experiences, looks, likes and dislikes. I have yet found one or many who could save me from the totality of my suffering. I do understand that not all who read this will not want to accept its credibility because of their own religious citations. Jesus was quoted as saying this;
20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it. (Holy bible, NIV, 1984, International Biblical society, Luke 17:20-22).
Even Jesus understood the importance of it being up to you, singularly to change your thoughts and actions to obtain the Kingdom of God, or to be your own savior. The question to be asked is how? There has been several through out history that have revealed the actions to be taken to try and lesson suffering brought on by human thought and actions. Self observance is the key. Not one of those individuals have hidden any of how or what to do, they all spell it out. In this next video Jiddu Krishnamurti explains what he has found on how to be aware with self observation.
I can see a world with less suffering caused by human atrocities against each other. Can you?
