LYRA LIGHT – THE THREE UNIVERSAL & THE FOUR NOBLE TRUTHS OF BUDDHA

~~~~~~~THE THREE UNIVERSAL TRUTHS~~~~~~~
1. NOTHING IS LOST IN THE UNIVERSE
MATTER TURNS INTO ENERGY ENERGY TURNS INTO MATTER. A DEAD LEAF TURNS INTO SOIL. A SEED SPROUT AND BECOMES A NEW PLANT. OLD SOLAR SYSTEMS DISINTEGRATE AND TURN INTO COSMIC RAYS. WE ARE BORN OF OUR PARENTS, OUR CHILDREN ARE BORN OF US.
WE ARE THE SAME AS PLANTS, AS TREES, AS OTHER PEOPLE, AS THE RAIN THAT FALLS. WE CONSIST OF THAT WHICH IS AROUND US, WE ARE THE SAME AS EVERYTHING. IF WE DESTROY SOMETHING AROUND US, WE DESTROY OURSELVES. IF WE CHEAT ANOTHER, WE CHEAT OURSELVES.
2. EVERYTHING CHANGES
LIFE IS LIKE A RIVER FLOWING ON AND ON EVER-CHANGING. SOMETIMES IT FLOWS SLOWLY AND SOMETIMES SWIFTLY . IT IS SMOOTH AND GENTLE IN SOME PLACES BUT LATER ON SNAGS AND ROCKS CROP UP OUT OF NOWHERE. AS SOON AS WE THINK WE ARE SAFE SOMETHING UNEXPECTED HAPPENS.
ONCE DINOSAURS MAMMOTHS, AND SABER-TOOTHED TIGERS ROAMED THIS EARTH. THEY ALL DIED OUT, YET THIS WAS NOT THE END OF LIFE. OTHER LIFE FORMS LIKE SMALLER MAMMALS APPEARED AND EVENTUALLY HUMANS TOO…
3. LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT
THERE IS CONTINUOUS CHANGES DUE TO THE LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT. THIS IS THE SAME LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT FOUND IN EVERY MODERN SCIENCE TEXTBOOK. IN THIS SCIENCE AND BUDDHISM ARE ALIKE.
THE LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT IS KNOW´N AS KARMA. NOTHING EVER HAPPENS TO US BY LUCK. WE RECEIVE EXACTLY WHAT WE EARN, WHETHER IT IS GOOD OR BAD. WE ARE THE WAY WE ARE NOW DUE TO THE THINGS WE HAVE DONE IN THE PAST. OUR THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS DETERMINE THE KIND OF LIFE WE CAN HAVE. IF WE DO GOOD THINGS, IN THE FUTURE GOOD THINGS WILL HAPPEN TO US. EVERY MOMENT WE CREATE NEW KARMA BY WHAT WE SAY, DO, AND THINK. IF WE UNDERSTAND THIS, WE DO NOT NEED TO FEAR KARMA. IT BECOMES OUR FRIEND. IT TEACHES US TO CREATE A BRIGHT FUTURE.
WHAT WE SEND OUT IS WHAT WE RECEIVE BACK. CAN YOU REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS MEAN? CAN YOU SEE THE DEPTH?!

~~~~~~~THE FOUR NOBLE TRUTHS~~~~~~~
1- SUFFERING/UNHAPPINESS – EXISTS. IT IS BUILT INTO THE VERY STRUCTURE OF OUR EXISTENCE. SUFFERING INCLUDES ORDINARY PAIN, THE SUFFERING OF UNWANTED CHANGE, AND THE SUFFERING OF PERVASIVE CONDITIONING.
2 – SUFFERING HAS A CAUSE – ITS CAUSE IS SELF-CANTERED CRAVING, AND DESIRE FOR THAT WHICH WILL NOT BE OBTAINED. OUT OF THIS COMES GRABBING,CLINGING, OR REJECTING. MUCH OF THIS IS BOUND TO FAIL BECAUSE WE FAIL TO DEEPLY REALIZE THE TRUTH OF IMPERMANENCE, SO THAT WE GRASP AT THE CONSTANT CHANGING FLUX OF LIFE AS IF IT WERE SOMETHING STABLE AND FIXED. THESE CAUSES ARE PART OF A SERIES OF INTERCONNECTED LINKS OF CAUSE AND EFFECT WHICH CREATE A VICIOUS CIRCLE FROM WHICH THERE APPEARS TO BE NO ESCAPE. WE MEET NEW SITUATIONS STILL ENCUMBERED WITH THE VIEWED AND ATTITUDES OF THE PAST, WHICH CREATE STILL MORE TIES WHICH BIND US TO THE WHEEL OF SUFFERING.
3 – SUFFERING CAN CEASE – THROUGH LETTING GO OF CONDITIONED STATES AND VIEWS, AND DESIRES WHICH WILL NOT BE FULFILLED. THE CAUSE OF SUFFERING FAILS AWAY. ALTHOUGH SUFFERING IS A CONDITION OF HUMAN LIFE, WE OURSELVES CREATE THE REST OF IT. WE CAN LEARN TO STOP THE SUFFERING.
4 – THERE IS A PATH THAT LEADS TO THE CESSATION OF SUFFERING AND UNHAPPINESS, CALLED – THE EIGHTFOLD PATH – NIRVANA – IS A STATE IN WHICH WE NO LONGER CREATE AVOIDABLE SUFFERING AND UNHAPPINESS FOR OURSELVES AND OTHERS.. IT PARALLELS JESUS CONCEPT OF THE – KINGDOM OF HEAVEN ON EARTH.
DO YOU WANT TO SUFFER OR DO YOU WANT TO BE FREE?! THERES NO FREEDOM WITH ANY KIND OF LINK TO SUFFER PAST OR PRESENT. THE PATH OF LOVE AND LIGHT NEEDS TO CLEAR IT SELF FROM ALL PAIN AND SUFFERING SO IT CAN MOVE FREE TOWARDS THE KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM OF THE DIVINE.
