Nobody is safe from the careless whispers of suffering, no not even one. Even the most affluent individual in the world who seems to belong to the gods of Olympus suffers from mental setbacks of how to allocate their riches, safeguard them and even further them on. So, if these “lucky sperm club” members still suffer despite life being handed to them on a silver platter, how much more us who belong to the bottom part of the food chain.
You wonder then, “so what if there is suffering? and I’m amenable that it is part of life? How do we go around it? And, don’t tell me suffering is a lifetime gig?” Well, it seems for me. But I cannot answer that with closed-loop certainty. But there was this guy, who as this world’s chronicle has it, was able to get out of this life’s daily grind of suffering and has a sneak-peek into the brighter side of life. The venerable sire was Siddhartha Gautama.
