I saw the first of two talks with Mingyur Rinpoche this morning.
I’ll wait until hearing the next one before I write a full post, but there was one interesting thing he said that related to the theme of compassion.
He asked us to consider why we suffer. He then suggested that we suffer because we want to be happy. Every moment we are looking for happiness, we even blink our eyes and breath looking for happiness (stop either one for one minute and you will see!). So, in wanting happiness, this suffering is compassion.
