We are often in the chaos of the quick fix for many things ie weight loss, instant money, and happiness. We do not realize that it is a complex system we live in and that it needs to be looked at from many angles. Our myopic view is what lets us down most of the time and continues the suffering.
So it is good to learn how to think In a way that helps me to reduce suffering.
