If you believe that life is suffering you are a goner. You have inflicted a bondage to yourself and then you do anything in your power to free yourself from your self-inflicted bondage. Just because some dude said that life is suffering you just believe it? You inflcted yourself a bondage then you want to be free from it. Isn't that kinda stupid ?

If you don't believe that life is suffering you are already free from suffering. Where is suffering if  you don't believe.
