Fill your perscription
Imagine you wake up one day, suffering from a real bad case of the flu. You feel like every part of your body is on fire, your brain just want 5 minutes of peace so you can think about what to do, but you don’t get it. You finally drag your body out of bed, and go to the doctor’s office. He examines you and writes out a prescription to help alleviate the symptoms until your body has enough strength to overcome the flu. In a similar manner the unhappiness that beats us down in this world is something we need to see a doctor for. The Buddha has the prescription of a cure, which will not only eliminate the symptoms, but grant you immunity for future outbreaks. He has given us our prescription; it is up to use to fulfill it.
