We should consider what it is exactly we think is the cause of our own unhappiness. And what would or could change in ourselves or in our lives for us to be happy? This, of course, is the question Shakyamuni Buddha is said to have confronted - a cause and an end of suffering. We should check whether our own individual diagnoses are correct and whether our fantasies of a solution are taking us in the direction we want to go or whether they themselves are part of the problem. In this Rohatsu talk Barry explores some of the lessons from the Buddha's enlightenment story. He suggests that much the same way the Buddha came to accept impermanence as part of human perfection, we can bring the same perspective to attachment and the body, things often cast as in conflict to the spiritual.
