The Dream and Suffering

Every constituent object, everything which we see, which we feel, which we can understand - because it is not true, is full of suffering, suffering itself because it is dualistic. When there is duality, there is suffering. In this sense, everything appears in the form of suffering. When you understand that it is not true existence, there is no more suffering. If you find out that it is just a dream [laughs], there is no suffering. The dream you created or you have dreamed - then there is no more suffering. 

Today's quote directly follows yesterday's excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 65-07-28-D as found on -  - Excerpt edited by DC
