Whether the person has to suffer? The narration how the traveler looked for truth.
the Little, ordinary man, than not differing from others went on open spaces of reflections about the life. He is not a philosopher and not the seer, and even not the wise man. It - one of us, millions and thousands of those who wants to live not in tortures, and in pleasure.
And he looked for the answer to a question: why I am given sufferings? And here what found...
“The condition of an illness, bitterness, grief, fear, alarm in philosophy most often is considered in two aspects: as necessary destiny of the person as it is subject to diseases, aging, death; as unique way to transformation, to improvement of the personality“. (New philosophical encyclopedia: In 4 vol. of M.: Thought. Under V. S. Styopin`s edition. 2001.)
Proceeding from these data, the little person assumed that the suffering, is what the individual needs to endure for clarification, self-improvement or because life without sorrows does not happen.
Such approach was not pleasant. Very much it is sad to live to suffer. Or to suffer because to live. Some utopian hopelessness without choice options. He continued to look for further.
In turn, in Christianity the point of view which is not encouraging, and even on the contrary.
“According to the New testament the atoning sacrifice of Christ attaches to suffering significance of guarantee of rescue. The Christian mysticism estimates sufferings at the Middle Ages as a sign of love of god to the person. (Soviet encyclopedia. Hl. edition: L. F. Ilyichyov, P. N. Fedoseyev, S. M. Kovalyov, V. G. Panov. 1983.)
Here is how that, is not really pleasant to be responsible for sins it is unknown whom and it is unknown when perfect. Perhaps as was in antecedents, but I do not know about it. And consequently, at what here I?
The little man wanted nevertheless something light and fine. And this tragic, cloudy outlook not that did not add light, and did not inspire at all to live, fight and look for.
The personality, insignificant in comparison with world revolution, found the benefactor - A. Sviyasha who in the books says that: “The person is given birth for pleasure and spiritual development“. And this position very much on temper had. Especially word “pleasure“. The lyrical hero decided to live to rejoice and to develop spiritually.
To live to rejoice, not necessarily designates “to assign to all“, but means to work on itself to neutralize sad feelings and to feel inside harmony and happiness.
Under these purposes psychological techniques very well approach. “What do you feel? About what your feelings? Where you feel them in a body? - these are the first questions with which consultations at the psychologist can begin. And they come to the end: “And how you want to live?“ and “What for this purpose it is necessary to make?“. And answers, even recipes, as a rule, are. And, the best and effective for you, you thought up them!
Some period of time after disposal of envy, jealousy, melancholy, fear and other sad feelings, - the person felt simplification and pleasure. There was happiness from the dumped freight, from freedom, light air and desire to live. And these feelings - they remarkable, pleasant, fine. Also there was a desire to lodge them in itself forever.
But, unfortunately, the period of pleasure lasted not for long. Probably, it is boring for person to live just like that. He surely thinks out to himself all new and new problems to suffer.
And still, the hero of the narration learned that his friends grieved too. And it, - despite existence in their life of all what he dreamed of! And it means, - there is no disposal?
“The suffering arises from unsatisfied desires when desires are met, - there comes the boredom. Whatever the nature gave whatever gave happiness whom we neither were and than nor owned, it is impossible to destroy the sufferings inherent in life“. (New philosophical encyclopedia: In 4 vol. of M.: Thought. Under V. S. Styopin`s edition. 2001.)
The little person, - and not God and not the Seer, was influenced by this phenomenon. At first he understood that he most of all concerns and disturbs. Then found ways to dissolve unpleasant feelings. And even sometimes tried to obtain it. And here it, came simplification. And after that - new problems, either tests, or shortcomings, call it as you want. But than it was, it was always more difficult passed.
Also the following thought - whether came and correct it is a reference point - pleasure? Whether a right way - disposal of desires? Perhaps, it is necessary just to learn to live in sufferings not to notice them?
And from desire - “to get rid of sufferings“ - too it is necessary to get rid.
And this the idea was confirmed by philosophy the Zen - the Buddhism. To become free from what - that is it is necessary to agree to it, to accept.
And then the person stopped.
Sufferings need to learn to be worried, to go down quietly a tide of life further, but not to fall in the sorrows and not to roll in them.
So, not pleasure and not a grief to you it is given, the person, and just life, - such what it is.
