Yes, it's true that life brings with it a considerable share of suffering and stress,
but happiness and joy are also avail— able to us. The Buddha expressed this by
describing life as the realm of the ten thousand joys and the ten thousand
sorrows. Bud— dhist teachers focus on those ten thousand sorrows because our
inability to see the truth of dukkha in our lives only increases it. The Buddha said
he taught two things: dukkha and the end of dukkha. Before we get into practices
that have ...

He accepts whatever God gives him, and, because of this, out of a thousand
difficulties he has at least one point of peace. Out of a thousand problems, he
gets one point of peace. But, when the man who has so much prays, he does not
get even one point of peace from those thousand riches that he possesses. Ten
thousand sorrows come from those thousand. “I must get this, get that, get this,
get something else.” Therefore, he does not have any peace. The higher he goes
, the less ...

But the essential work is to embrace not only the ten thousand joys of life but also
its ten thousand sorrows, always invoking the Basmala. Unpleasant feelings,
such as sadness or anger, are just energies that are begging to be
acknowledged and integrated. The Qur'an states that it is God who has created
feelings and caused our laughter and tears (23:78 and 53:36). In other words,
they are all sacred and by acknowledging our feelings—our laughter and our
tears—we are honoring ...

This requires a willingness to face the ten thousand joys and the ten thousand
sorrows of life with compassion, to open to the deepest places of our being. This
is a different kind of fearlessness, one that requires as much passion and fire as
any warrior path. One ofthe dangers is that as the dharma becomes more
mainstream in our culture, it can become too comfortable. Practitioners have be—
come more affluent, and when you combine this with a greater emphasis on
compassion ...

Or as the fourth-century Taoist sage Chuang Tzu said, life is ten thousand joys
and ten thousand sorrows. An hour later as I was working in the section that
featured plants for mental and emotional wellbeing, such as St. John's wort for
mild to moderate depression and kava-kava for anxiety, Detectives Koren and
Coyle returned. “We need to talk to you two,” Koren said as he walked up to me.
He was wearing a black suit and a tie with a geometric black-and-white pattern,

... when she said, “Now I can see just how my twisted thinking and my running
away from myself brought me so much more suffering than I needed to have. And
