From Vanipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The key to being peaceful is satisfaction. There is a chain; when one is satisfied, he is happy, and when one is happy, he is automatically peaceful, and peace is what everyone is looking for. Therefore, if the start of the chain is disrupted by one's dissatisfaction, then automatically, he becomes unhappy, leading to him being distressed. Dissatisfaction is therefore a negative state to be in. The solution to get rid of this state is to become spiritually inclined, and when one is in that stage, he can then distinguish between spirit and matter, resulting in his dissatisfaction to disappear. But how so? What is the relationship between satisfaction, dissatisfaction and spiritual progress?
