The Root Of Suffering

The Root Of Suffering December 19, 2017

A Mom friend said to me last week, “My husband says life is suffering and the root of suffering is desire.”

I said, “Funny, my husband says that too.”

She said, “It’s never more clearly true than when looking at a toddler.”

She is so right.

Toddlers are nothing but a bundle of desire.

I’m a super permissive Mom, I don’t want to be saying no to things because of continence or things that are not critical.

Yet even I find myself saying “no” all the time!

Don’t chase the dog with scissors, don’t put batteries in my drinking water, don’t pull diapers out if the trash…

And each of these thwarted desires causes such anguish and sufffering.
