Home » Quotes » Suffering Vs Blessings

To experience suffering is to end suffering.
To enjoy blessings is to exhaust blessings.

– Buddhist saying

受苦是了苦,
享福是消福.

(When we face inevitable sufferings bravely, they will end.
When we indulge in pleasures complacently, they will end.
The Middle Way is to make the best of our suffering,
while treasuring our blessings best we can.)

    Enjoy blessings is like debiting/reducing the money in our bank. While experience suffering is like reducing/paying off some of our debts payment. Both are impermanent. We need to realize that good deeds generate good karma (blessings) and bad deeds generate bad karma (suffering) in time to come when the karmic results mature.
