      Why are you concerned with earthly possession and matters? I'm an Atheist and it confuses me because the ultimate goal is salvation of your soul in Abrahamic religions. The idea of becoming spiritually fulfilled by becoming independent of the desire for material things isn't something that's incompatible with Christianity. I'm tempted to call you a hylic.

    The premise of desire causing suffering is false. So therefore the whole thing can be tossed out. Life is the sum total of all of the positives and negatives, trying to avoid it or run from it just makes you neurotic.

        It's a loaded question. All creatures desire but only man thinks that it's wrong, he is the least healthy of all animals for that reason. Man is the sickest and most out of touch with his instincts.

        suffering is an emotion, if you were drugged up you would feel no suffering. Thats is why anesthesia exists.
        It is caused by brain's chemistry being what they are, not desiring things.

          >suffering is an emotion
          Dukkha is a state of conditioned reality, even things like rocks and trees that lack brains are subject to it.

          >yeah but sufferi-
          The word is "dukkha". The First Noble Truth is "nidham dukkham", it is not about "suffering" it is about a state that you are in by virtue of existing as a conditioned being. The fact that you can dope yourself up but will eventually come down is dukkha.

      All desire factually leads to suffering and all suffering can be traced back to boredom or disappointment which traces back to desire. It is pretty simple to observe.

            Hence Buddhism and every other neurosis inducing religion on Earth and even political religions like liberalism and Marxism. There is no karma in the future, only cause and effect in the here and now. If I eat 10 donuts a day and become fat, it's not my bad karma, it's cause and effect.

            Suffering is not crucial. Only morons want to deify and mystify suffering.

            It's not an ideal but it is an essential part of it. Imagine if you just ate whatever you wanted and no longer suffered hunger, you would just be a fatass. And so on for all things, suffering creates temperance and builds modesty and character. Absolutely fricking crucial.

            Suffering is meaningless and like you said it's just a meaningless chain of causes and effects and it turns out this chain of causation can be broken. Suffering is not deep, suffering doesn't make you stronger, doesn't make you smarter. Suffering is just suffering and it just has a cause. You remove this cause and suffering is destroyed. You don't remove this cause and suffering persists. That's all there is to it. That's the reality.

            The cause can't be removed, only hidden, hence why it creates neurosis. Better to embrace the good and bad wholeheartedly.

      Then its good that Buddha didn't teach that. He taught that thirsting for being, non-being, and enjoyment never leads to lasting satisfaction is the cycle of birth and death and rebirth.

      If I killed your entire family and that made you upset, you would be suffering. The reason you would be suffering is because you desire to have them still be alive. If you give up that desire, you stop suffering.
