Why can't life be problem free?

Feeling sad? Feeling down?

I'm gonna ask you question. Are you ready?

...

Why?

Why must man have problems? Why do you guys have to create imaginary solutions (Enlightenment) to imaginary problems (dark night).

Imaginary problem (hell), solution (stream-entry).

Imaginary problem (original sin), solution (Jesus).

Why keep fantasies alive?

Why not just be real.

I know people don't think Buddhism is harmful, or that Buddhism is dogmatic, but it can be.

Well, in the specific case of the DhO, the whole mind-exploring thing is not really helpful I would say. It's quite painful actually.

PS:

Sorry about the spaces, Robert.

So the answer you are proposing to your own problems is willful ignorance?

No. I am anti willful delusion.

Delusion being, dark night, hallucinations, imaginary problems and scenarios etc.

This is so close to paraphrasing the buddha. Deliciously ironic.

Yep. Buddhism 101.
