The Suffering of Suffering

The following is from a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

If , after some long time you cannot let go – ranting, raving and wailing for a year or more, that is called the suffering of suffering in Buddhism and can never be cured by hate, rage, or accusations.

Let it go, I do. The pain is yours, and only you can fix it, through compassion and self honesty. At least be honest with yourself!

There is treatment for PTSD, why make others deal with your pain because you won’t? You’ll feel better. To ruminate over pain is not helpful. Don’t you want to be free?

Cultivating a Sense of Humor

The following is from a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

Did a dog bite you? Did food poison you? Did a gun face your face? Did you suffer? Do you suffer the suffering of suffering? Did you burn? Did you freeze? Did you starve for love? Did the FBI or the police or the mighty wolf blow your house down? Got a cold? Welcome to the glorious gift of duality.

Samsara- we are here together only relying on our own karma. Suffering of suffering, because we cannot let go. No use to complain, I found. Better to go on strong, find your way. Why feel sorry for yourself? He who learns to laugh at himself will never cease to be amused! Haha!
