Soon it will be done,
…….Troubles of the world
“I tell you, friend, that it is not possible by traveling to know or see or reach a far end of the cosmos where one does not take birth, age, die, pass away, or reappear. But at the same time, I tell you that there is no making an end of suffering & stress without reaching the end of the cosmos. Yet it is just within this fathom-long body, with its perception & intellect, that I declare that there is the cosmos, the origination of the cosmos, the cessation of the cosmos, and the path of practice leading to the cessation of the cosmos.”
It seems to me that in any moment we are all capable of putting an end to our suffering for good. Sooner would be better than later but realistically, if that ever were to happen, it won’t be for a long, long time.
