    Happiness which comes from sense contact is the very thing which brings you suffering. If you analyze all of your suffering, you will find the root cause is some material pleasure. There is no material enjoyment that will not lead to suffering. But because of the time gap, we don’t put two plus two together. So we don’t realize the connection between suffering and enjoyment. If anything has given you happiness, also know that it is going to give you trouble.
