The Four Noble Truths: The Truth to The Cessation of Suffering (Nirodha)

If we choose to become spiritual warriors, how will                                                                   we conquer our enemy? HowTibWheelofLife can we cease suffering? How do we stop desiring, clinging, and craving? How do we silence the ego and bring stillness to the mind? We can free ourselves from our suffering by letting go of clinging and by surrendering our egos so that our souls can shine through. Surrender is a powerful weapon which takes great strength to wield, but with continuous practice we will be able to set our selfishness aside and open our hearts…to Love.

In Tibetan Medicine, Love and Compassion is the ultimate antidote for all disease and suffering. When we truly love, we cannot be selfish and we cannot crave and desire; we can only give unconditionally. When we love, our souls, our true Selves, unite with Truth, God, the Universe… This is freedom! Free from our egos, free from the cycle of ignorance, desire, and fear/anger, free from suffering.

Love is

the perfect stillness

and the greatest excitement, and most profound act,

and the word almost as complete

as His name

– Rabia of Basra, Islamic Sufi saint

God came to my house and asked for charity.

And I fell on my knees and cried,

“Beloved, what may I give?”

“Just love,” He said.

“Just love.”

Saint Francis of Assisi

Even after all this time

the sun never says to the earth,

“You owe me.”

Look what happens with a love like that –

it lights the whole world.

– Hafiz, Persian poet
