1. All life is suffering
2. ..but suffering is also optional
3. Suffering comes from attachment
4. …therefore don’t get attached
The above is my ultra-condensed take at Buddha’s ‘Four Noble Truths.’ I find it to be a pretty reasonable formula on certain aspects of life, especially when going through hardship/pain/suffering. Here are the Four Noble Truths as applied to eating/food. As with learning languages, the fastest way you can do it is by associations with familiarity. Food is a pretty good association to understand these truths, so enjoy. Scroll down to paragraph 5 to get straight to it.
