casi's religion notes

three chapters ago

1. Noble Truth of Suffering: clinging to existence is suffering. Birth, decay, illness, death is suffering. Things-we-hate and things-we-want is suffering. nothing lasts forever, always. everything withers

2. Noble Truth of the Cause of Suffering: craving for existence, craving for non-existence. Craving leads to rebirth and continuation of life (the tendency to confuse reality with your perception of reality) to find "delights." you will eventually get tired of the delights you acquire and will want more. you suffer. the thirst for pleasure is endless and unquenchable

3. Noble Truth of the Cessation of Suffering: absence of passion, abandoning thirst, destruction of desire. end eternal suffering. end the cycle of wanting, not getting, being sad, wanting again

4. Noble Truth of the Path that leads to the Cessation: Self- and mental- discipline. Wisdom. "form is emptiness; emptiness is form." Following the Eightfold Path and avoiding two extremes: Hedonism, the pursuit of complete and ultimate sensory pleasure; and Asceticism, the pursuit of utter self-denial.

Eightfold path: Right belief, Right aspiration, Right speech, Right conduct, Right means of Livelihood, Right Endeavor, Right Mindfulness, Right Meditation

Genre: Mental/Health Topic: Teeth Whitening
