Get Off the Hamster Wheel

It really is that easy. Once you realize it, the idea is blindingly obvious. Just get off of the hamster wheel. Just stop trying to become someone else. The three critical problems in human life according to the Buddha are greed, hatred, and delusion. We have to understand “greed” very broadly here, to include the greed to get better all the time, which is an indefinite goad away from who we really are.
