Teenagers of Reddit, what is the biggest current problem you are facing? Adults of Reddit, why is that problem not a big deal?(r/AskReddit)
Maybe your ambition is to just sit there. Maybe you should look into Buddhism and travel the globe and hone your meditation craft. Find peace within you.
Edit: since this is getting upvotes, I’ll put some more advice in here. If you’re looking to get into Buddhism, which personally I find to be so very very fulfilling. It teaches inner peace and happiness. I read about Buddhism during a very rough time in my life, where I was trying to find something or someone to blame on the problems. Buddhism taught me that anger, hatred & sadness are reactionary emotions. By reacting in that way towards those feelings, I am myself creating the anger and hatred. It taught me to look at every situation from other points of views. I was made angry by XYZ but their actions that cause my anger was because they had a shitty day and took it out on me, etc etc. It’s my reaction that I can control, and it’s my reaction that causes the anger and sadness.
The book that I read was by Thich Nhat Hanh and is titled The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching: Transforming Suffering into Peace, Joy, and Liberation and/or Old Path White Clouds. I included a link to purchase on amazon. My best friend recently went through some trying times and I shipped him this book. I really recommend it to anyone going through struggle, or if you’d just like to see ways to handle stress.
Edit 2: So the book I suggested just went from around #2,300 on Amazon to #409 since the post. Reddit, that’s pretty damn cool.
