So the word samsara mean cyclic existence, or the endless continuation of habitual patterns. Making friends with what causes all of our suffering may seem counterintuitive, or even like a pretty bad idea. On the other hand if we don’t make friends with that which irritates us then we are not “being friendly”.
Being friendly is a bit different then having an agenda to like what we like and dislike what we dislike – rather we are trying to see the opportunities for friendliness in the way we understand and look into situations and things. This being friendly brings us a lot more freedom; the short video here explorers that.
