We suffer more in the imagination than in reality

So, says Seneca.


This was perhaps,

a premonition of Mindfulness.


It is the mind which leads to our suffering,

Not the world.


The world is our idea,

our construct

our creation.


We make-up what we feel and see and hear;

Slaves to our imagination

and in control

of ourselves

but limited

a little,



new car

that you drive

at speed

without reading the instruction manual.
