When things don’t go well

Why is there suffering? Why is life so crap? Why is it such a cruel world? I just want to be happy.

Years ago, so the story goes, a woman hears of a wise old guru in a far off foreign land. So she travels many, many days to see the teacher. When she reaches the guru she says “I am fed up with my life and all the discontent in it. Please tell me the secret of a happy life.”

“Good judgement.” states the guru.

“That seems a bit vague. How do I gain this good judgement?”

“Bad judgement.”
