I am your friend, Hanzze, no worries about that!
The term "hair on fire" is usually in relation to a description of the type of urgent zeal that samvega inspires.
I guess it was 'dukkha' and 'hair on fire' that reminded me of the Bob Dylan song!
Sorry to take your thread off-topic.
More seriously - I think its important to make peace of with dukkha so that one is not constantly reacting with aversion and maintaining the cycle of suffering.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
