Desire to suffer

The desire to have happiness for all results in inevitable suffering when sadness is seen.

The desire to be well makes being unwell difficult.

The desire for enlightenment and release breeds constant anguish as the state of ignorance persists.

Free from desire, the perfect way, all happens yet is not suffered.

Indeed, desire for happiness is desire to suffering.

What a nice paradox! :D

Easy to understand, difficult to practice.

Yes desire is the root of conflict so so the wish to practice it is also trapped in the same snare.

Being, just being, no desire either way, then it happens itself.
