"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

As far as I understand, suffering is conditioned to the fact, that we always want to keep "good feelings".
When a good feeling ends, we want to experience this or another good feeling, again and we try to "get" it.
The "hunger" for the good feelings means in my understanding to suffer.

The ceasing of the will means in my understanding to get free of suffering.

Well......it's difficult to find the words in my native language, I really hope I wrote comprehentible.
Many greetings from

Claudia

Tell me ( I am serious ) do you fellahs actually know any Arahants, and are you privy to their thought processes ?

Thag 1.20. Ajita - I do not fear death; nor do I long for life. I’ll lay down this body, aware and mindful.

"Beautifully taught is the Lord's Dhamma, immediately apparent, timeless, of the nature of a personal invitation, progressive, to be attained by the wise, each for himself." Anguttara Nikaya V.332

If the house only existed when I perceive it through my sense faculty, then it would not exist when I go to sleep or lost consciciousness for some reason? Something isn't right with the logic there..
