daily dharma (‘some of the dharma’ pages 3-4)

Only four “noble truths” but are there other less than noble truths?

Noble Truth #1 – “All life is sorrowful” Does that make it unsatisfactory? (Dwelling on the melancholy is sometimes enjoyable in my experience)

Noble Truth #2 – “The Cause of Suffering is Ignorant Craving” Addiction(s)=Ignorant Craving(s)? Addictive personality type?

“The World does everything wrong on purpose-…”(page 4) Reminds me of the Firesign Theatre – “Everything You Know Is Wrong”


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.

    I reckon you need the melancholy to show you that contentment feels different.
