Dukkha

Dukkha is suffering from

Birth
Ageing
Sickness
Death
Departure from who/what we like,
Being with who/what we dislike,
Failing to achieve what we like or to be with who we like,
Form, feeling, perception, mental formations, consciousness (Five Aggregates) subject to clinging

Dukkha is from expecting stability despite the inherent instability of

Health
Emotions
Preferences
Relationships
Finances
Weather
Government
Worldly goals…

Struck me that these lyrics apply to Dukkha too:

‘I don’t believe you anymore …
I don’t believe you.

Never let it be said I was untrue
I never found a home inside of you.
Never let it be said I was untrue
I gave you all my time.’

– ‘The Ubiquitous Mr. Lovegrove’ By ‘Dead Can Dance’
