I like Taoism because it says life is good, almost like “you make what your life is…” But the Buddha said, “Life IS suffering.” I feel he means, if you don’t cause suffering on yourself, someone will cause suffering you, It’s not a perfect world, and many do it because they have been exposed to it themselves it’s like a cycle. What do you think it means?
Children, not three (I am one of three). Is it possible I have a brother in heaven, or do souls get reincarnated, and is it possible I could meet him on this plane? I am serious, so please don’t make fun of me. Thanks.
