Samsara is unfixable

Samsara is unfixable

It always suprises me when, even after so many years of trying to practice Buddhism, I still see myself hoping to fix Samsara. Hoping for the perfect conditions, expecting everything to go well, wishing for my happy ever after…

Strangely enough, it’s hard to let go of this idea that, sometime in the future, we will finally be happy and content with samsaric circumstances.

Fortunately, from time to time, when things get rough, I come to my senses and realize, for the gazillionth time, that Samsara is unfixable. It is flawed, it is imperfect – it will always deceive us. If we really want to be happy, we have to strive for Deliverance!
