  1. Alexander, good evening. I am a psychotherapist and work with similar requests. You need to reformat your request a little and a lot of things will fall into place. I don't understand life because I don't fully understand who I am or why I came here. Therefore, the request for life and my offer are not met. There is a sense of disharmony. This is called an existential crisis in therapy. As soon as a person understands himself to life, his questions end and the idyll begins. It is necessary to go through the stage of separation and individuation.

  2. A person may suffer because of unrealized needs. By your own will or someone else's. This is the main Christian problem. To limit the actions of someone else's toxic will, there are civil rights.

    The nightingale will sing to us in the green thicket.
    We will not think of death more often
    than a crow in the sight of scarecrows in the garden.
    � � Having sinned, we ourselves will stand in the corner.

    We will meet our old age in a deep armchair,
    surrounded by grandchildren and granddaughters. If
    they are not there, they will let the neighbors watch
    the death of the spy network on TV.

    How books, friends, and the epoch teach us:
    tomorrow cannot be as bad
    as yesterday, and the word pisati
    in tempi follows us in passati.

    Because the soul exists in the body,
    Life will be better than we wanted.
    We will roast our cake in pure lard,
    for it tastes better that way; so we were told.

    Society is not always interested in the individual's self-realization. Is this an individual's problem? The state says that this is its problem, so why do we need the state? Clearly not in order to build a new Vatican in Sergiev Pasad and evict people from there.

  3. Naturally. If you understand the cause-and-effect relationships of something and are able to interact with them, as well as change them, then life becomes much easier, more interesting and happier.

  4. The correct understanding of life consists in a developed self-consciousness, i.e. consciousness of oneself primarily as a Soul… THAT IS, THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF ONESELF AS A SOUL ENDOWED WITH A BODY (not the other way around)! This means that ALL THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS SHOULD (if possible) BE IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE SOUL – FOR ITS OWN GOOD…Please note that if you lead a Life for the good of the Soul, then the body will also be much healthier; similarly, the chances of finding Happiness should generally increase significantly if a person is guided in life by interests “from the Heart”… That's how this idea works!

  5. You can't understand life correctly. People perceive the world subjectively, and any reason rests on conventions. You can create a suitable model for describing the world that will help you avoid suffering. But hardly everyone: an educated, versatile person can suffer from anything.

    The real way to avoid suffering is to reform your consciousness. If you think there is no suffering, there is no suffering for you. Many crazy people are happy to be trapped in their imaginary worlds: do they understand life correctly? – from the point of view of the critical majority, it is unlikely. Or monks who have spent their entire lives practicing the Dharma: they are cut off from the world, they are hermits. But many of them have come close to complete relief from suffering, and some may even have achieved it.

  6. To get rid of suffering, you must fully accept this life.be one with the world.humble that is.

    There are many barriers to this in the mind,and in the physical body, too.we need to work with them.since everything in the world is dynamic,rotating, it is necessary to rotate accordingly.with the whole world.

  7. If you are interested in the Buddhist understanding, there is the concept of prajna-transcendental wisdom.

    Ordinary life is one of two ways of being. This method is characterized by its inclusion in the causal process. When the mind is bound, not free from certain phenomena, it becomes together with these phenomena a link in the chain of cause and effect. This mode of existence of the mind is called samsara. Inclusion in samsara continues as long as the mind has an illusory idea of its permanent unchanging personality. The creature thinks: “I was like this and I am like this and I will be like this. This is a pleasure for me. I don't like it. This idea is called ignorance (avidya) in Buddhism. It turns out that such a consciousness is trying to fix some kind of convenient permanent state, when there are pleasant things, and there are no unpleasant things. Such attachment or passion is called trishna. But, reasoning in this way, consciousness is in interdependence with external phenomena that continue to change, move, and sooner or later there is a discrepancy between consciousness and the rest of the world, which causes suffering, anxiety, dissatisfaction (dukkha). Such consciousness can be compared to a sailing ship. It tries to raise some sails to go wherever it wants. But when there is a storm, the sails begin to interfere with sailing, too strong a wind can send such a ship on rocks or on a shoal.

    Therefore, even if one understands how life works, samsara, cause and effect, sails and wind, this understanding is not enough to neutralize anxiety, to eliminate suffering. To do this, you need to not just maneuver between pleasant and unpleasant things. To remove suffering, you need not the usual worldly wisdom, but a different kind of wisdom.

    First of all, the sign of such wisdom is the ability to realize that the person in samsara is impermanent. Consciousness is a stream of instantaneous states, similar to movie stills. There is no state of consciousness in samsara that lasts longer than a moment. In addition, to eliminate the causes of suffering, you need to direct the mind towards independence, freedom from pleasant and unpleasant things. As long as consciousness moves like a stream, suffering will also arise along with this movement, just as waves on water arise while a ship is sailing. But there is another way of being — nirvana. This is the state of mind when it has stopped moving as a stream and stopped. This stopping does not mean disappearing, but means another being free from causal processes. In this state, suffering cannot arise, because there is no place for the causes of suffering to come from. In this state, there is no appearance or disappearance. In this state, there are no composite elements of the mind, only a single dimensionless impersonal element of nirvana. That is, this state is not tied to samsaric phenomena in any way. It is found outside of samsara or as the opposite side of samsara. Therefore, the wisdom that leads to the discovery of such a state of mind is sometimes called transcendental. Such wisdom is cultivated through the practice of direct perception of reality as it is, the rejection of illusions.

    That is, to get rid of suffering, you should try to look for the causes of happiness not in the external world, but in your mind. Try to understand how the mind works, how desires arise. How the mind reacts to life events. What parts it consists of, and what rules it follows when moving. There will be no cause for suffering when it is discovered that there are no things in the world that can completely destroy the freedom of the mind.

  8. It is correct to understand the forces of nature that develop the whole of nature. From the non-living level to the human level and beyond.

    What does it mean? Through understanding how our psyche works and the perception of reality within it. This is a question of psychoanalysis.

  9. The first Noble Truth is that wherever there are living beings and in whatever form they are, there is dissatisfaction and suffering, whether in the gross or subtle form. Everywhere there is old age and death. Everywhere there is contact with unpleasant sensations and situations.

    The second Noble Truth refers to the causes that give rise to suffering. The Buddha called the insatiable desires and passions of living beings the cause of suffering. Wherever there is a thirst for pleasure and pleasantness, there is always frustration and dissatisfaction from not getting what you want, from losing what you want, or from being satiated with what you want.

    The Third Noble Truth indicates a state free from all kinds of suffering. The Buddha called this state ” nibbana.”
    The Fourth Noble Truth reveals the ” method that leads to happiness, well-being, reduction of life's problems, and ultimately to the attainment of nibbana-complete liberation from suffering. Since this method contains eight components, it is calledThe Noble Eightfold Path.

  10. Perhaps the opposite is true.

    And a person who has understood life as it is, and not just created some illusion of understanding, will be very upset by this understanding and will live the rest of his life in suffering.

  11. And who even knows which understanding of life is right and which is wrong? We all come to this world with the same (zero) knowledge about it, and it is strange to assume that someone knows exactly about the correct understanding, and someone about the wrong one, imho�

    In general, if we talk about solving problems at the same time, then we should not forget about the unpredictability of life, and about accidents that are unsettling.
