Step Forward

BfeetWe can speculate about “ultimate” truths all we want, but unless we can solve the problem of suffering, what good will it do us? We can convince ourselves that “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” is ours. But until we remove the causes of suffering and put in place the causes of happiness, it will all be in vain.

We need to avoid harming ourselves and others. We need to contribute to our own and others’ wellbeing. And we need to train the mind, so that it will not continue to lead us into suffering. Once we make this determination, the path starts to open up in front of us. There are no secrets. We need only step forward.
