Today in Dublin in theory I took the afternoon off work not for any reason other than I very rarely do it. The last time I done it I found a coffee shop and sat and read a book. I tried to do the same today but some poor planning on my part meant that I spent most of my free afternoon answering work related phone calls and dealing with technical issues.
The book I’m reading is unbelievably interesting but I had to giggle to myself as I read a bit about Buddhism. “There is suffering” “suffering is caused by craving” “there is an end to suffering”. I craved time to myself, I was “suffering” because of this craving. I turned off my phone and solved the problem instantly.
This Buddha lad might have been onto something.
