Out of all the creatures you could've been reborn as in samsara, in this life you were lucky enough to be born a sentient human.
>Why do I suffer so much?
Suffering is an inevitable constant in this world, we live in samsara, where every phenomena and state of mind is impermanent and conditioned by external causes.
>Normies/rich people/girls/chads have it better than me, they can satisfy their deepest pleasures and have sex whenever they want
The truth is, they are not happier than you, perhaps they have it even worse than you because they are unused to facing adversities in their unproblematic lives. An excess in pleasure leads to boredom, existential dread and fear of unpleasant circumstances, that's confirmed by the wealthiest people in the world who often indulge in drug abuse or commit heinous crimes in the vain hope of inhibiting their existential dread.
>What causes my suffering?
Attachments to your status/objects/friends is the main cause of your suffering, you should not seclude yourself from them or stop desiring, but you should be aware of the impermanence of all phenomena and enjoy something while it lasts. By not being caught up in delusions and expecting something to be permanent in your life, you can enjoy your existence to the fullest.
>How do I get out of this?
You can not escape suffering, you have to accept that everything in this world is bound to rise and fall, to birth and death. But the realization of the true nature of this world along with meditation and concentration can lead to one's liberation. By being compassionate and forgiving towards everyone we can change the world even with our little contribution, you should never give up on your goal to awaken others to the nature of this world and exercise compassion at all times after practice.
Do not waste this opportunity by chasing transient illusions, you can make the difference if you wish, and if man doesn't reward you, your positive karma surely will in your next life.
There is no rebirth. You're spending a whole lot of time on a complete fantasy. I almost feel bad for you but tbh death cultists like you deserve worse.
you're like 16 years old homosexual, you're not allowed to post on this board
He's right about Buddhism being a death cult.
death is good but cults are bad, i dont think OP was talking about buddhism though
oh ok I guess you were talking about buddhism, sorry OP most anons will be resistant to this information
>if you don't believe in the bullshit my parents taught me, you must be some edgy teenager
No, this is obvious to everyone not brainwashed into dharmic cults.
>posts link to pure distilled cope
Imagine being dumb enough to fall for this shit.
Imagine being dumb enough for believing you're a monkey and everything originated from nothing
Oh shit you're right it clearly originated from some bearded dude on a cloud who originated from nothing
Oh shit you're right we clearly originated from big boom and shape shifting monkeys
>big bearded dude
Atheists can only function with references to pop culture, no wonder they're so retarded if they get religion from family guy
>>big bearded dude
>Atheists can only function with references to pop culture, no wonder they're so retarded if they get religion from family guy
Imagine being this uncultured.
Always remember everybody posseses buddha nature and will obtain enlightenment
Always remember this baseless platitude so you can feel smug about how people will eventually agree with you (they will not, but you'll be permanently dead by then)
People have agreed with buddhism for longer than they agreed with the baseless platitudes of nihilist atheism
for the vast majority of human history, it was thought that the sun revolves around the earth
>for the vast majority of human history, it was thought that the sun revolves around the earth
A strawman doesn't make your argument any more convincing
>Samsara is an enduring lie
Why? Because it doesn't fit into your science cult narrative?
>Beliefs are fleeting but the truth will endure eternity.
Rest assured that atheism will never be the truth.
>Because it doesn't fit into your science cult narrative?
No, because it's fundamentally dumb on every level. Only an absolute fool or literal child could be convinced of it.
>No, because it's fundamentally dumb on every level. Only an absolute fool or literal child could be convinced of it.
Not an argument
Right, we're not arguing, I'm telling you how dumb your beliefs are. There's no point in arguing with the deliberately ignorant.
For the vast majority of human people have thought of the sun the same way you experience it. It travels across the sky.
And yet no matter how long people agree or disagree about something, it doesn't change whether the actual thing is or isn't true. Samsara is an enduring lie, but there will be trillions of years after the last biological thing dies and nobody will remember it then. Beliefs are fleeting but the truth will endure eternity.
Name fag your posts are irrelevant. You are irrelevant. Cope
>nihilism le bad
Souless npc outs himself.
Expect you, homosexuals don't posses spirit of buddha, dumbass tranny.
> Attachments to your status/objects/friends is the main cause of your suffering
On the contrary, my attachment to my friends and family is the main thing that helps me to remember that there is more to life than suffering.
>my attachment to my friends and family is the main thing that helps me to remember that there is more to life than suffering.
So if you remove these people from your life you'll sink into despair, that's the definition of attachment lol
and therefore attachment causes despair? days end, does that mean the sun causes darkness?
>therefore attachment causes despair?
Yes, the more you crave something the more you grow attached to it because you wish their impermanent nature would last forever. It's like obsessing over bubbles and despairing when they get popped.
And refusing to blow bubbles because they'll pop is somehow better?
>And refusing to blow bubbles because they'll pop is somehow better?
Did you even read the OP? It says you have to accept suffering not ignore it.
>doesn't mean nothing is worthwhile.
Nobody said this, understanding things are impermanent will help you enjoy life to the fullest.
>if you don't have anyone worth being attached to, THAT is suffering.
Tell me how it goes when the people you get attached to die or leave you lol
You attacked my beliefs, you're the one who should provide counterarguments instead of strawmanning and using ad hominems
And he calls others nihilists.
Lets face it you are just devoid of soul and buddhism is way to cope with that for you.
Explain what's nihilistic about saving people from suffering and addiction
Attentionwhoring and being selfrighteous, preachy homosexual who takes internet fights serious is not saving people.
>Attentionwhoring and being selfrighteous, preachy homosexual who takes internet fights serious is not saving people.
I already brought anons to the Dharma before, and i will again.
>I already believe that brought anons to the my cope before, and i will again.
Not just tranny but also selfflaggelating cuckold.
nothing lasts forever. doesn't mean nothing is worthwhile.
if you don't have anyone worth being attached to, THAT is suffering.
Unreal cope, kys.
Another non-argument, i accept your concession
>passive agressive tone
>taking internet fights seriously
>generic npc tier post
No arguments, just powerless screeching
>parroting same word over and over
Keyboard warriors cannot be enlightened, never forget that.
LULZ is a social media, never forget that
Did i made this gpt bot to glitch?
No, I recognize this kind of person. He is a man without humility, and without the ability to articulate his thoughts. You're going to get a lot of self-assured non-posts from him.
>irrilivant bullshit that has nothing to do with what i said
Typical not argument, i see.
LULZ is a social outlet that fosters free speech. If you don't like what people post you can fuck off back to r.eddit where you belong.
You forgot that thoose bubbles are normalfags like you and their worthless ideals.
You're more of a normalfag than me for embracing the nihilistic materialist narrative of the modern world
>nothing lasts forever, so it's best not to give a shit about anything
>i'm totally not a nihilist tho
>nothing lasts forever, so it's best not to give a shit about anything
You totally missed the point of attachment, it doesn't mean you should not desire anything ever, it just means you should not obsess over what you desire.
And now you have discovered why Buddhism is a death cult. Existence is suffering, and suffering is evil. The only way to combat evil is to combat existence. The whole Buddhist project is to remove yourself from the world so you can die before you die.
This thread is the result of your attachment to anime.
I don't just use anime pics, LULZ is an anime website
What a stupid thread. Obviously written by a poor person.
Some elucidations on dukkha (suffering) and samsara
Who asked you, attentionwhoring homosexual?
