【 Intent of liberation】– Where is the happiness?
With what you normally eat, when you eat, you are very eager, but are you really happy? There is no harm for us to calmly think about this. We all have this problem - greediness. With the good stuff, before it actually happens, you will feel that the more the merrier. After you finish eating, ha, your stomach becomes bloated. You may try to sleep, but you will feel like it does not feel comfortable standing nor sleeping, just like this. Did you really feel happy at that time? When you were eating, you didn't feel really happy, I think all of us have had this kind of feeling. You just did that with great enthusiasm, after eating, you become heavy-headed, the time (of discomfort) comes again, you do the same. Where is the happiness in this? Eh, but strangely enough, when the times comes, it just causes you to do that, this is the true subjective aspects. The principles on how to stop afflictions, gradually and conscientiously learn it. If you are able to cultivate it according to the teachings, the afflictions will be calmed.
