    i was scrolling through random-thread-A, and noticed somebodies signature said "desire is the leading cause of misery" or something to that effect. and it got me thinking, thats the truth. no question. im currently going through one of the most depressing times of my life, and its cause is desire, straight up.

    so, one, compliments to whomevers signature that is, and, two, does anyone else agree this is true?

    that's the main idea behind buddhism. if you don't desire anything, you can't ever be disappointed

    it is Buddhism.
    it's not only about disappointment though..
    it's also about how that changes one's behavior (for the better)
    and how it makes the transition to death a lot easier
    and stuff..
