how little do we need

The concepts of gods is bullshit, but religions are bullshit and damaging. Religions should be outlawed. It is all these false concepts that cause people to abuse children, to believe false teachings, and support the leaders. I could give examples... of the religious telling there followers that "Jesus will protect you from the flu." Where was your Jesus in 1918? And from floods, earthquakes, and other natural disasters. Bullshit religions. Life includes pain, delusions, disappointment, failures, and in the end death. Buddha was right. Life is unsatisfactory in many ways.

The cause of our suffering is our expectations of how life could be, our delusions. Reality is ugly, but we do not want to accept that, we wish to experience only the good. But we experience all of life, including the unsatisfactory parts. Much of the ugly is brought about by other people, and that is just a fact of life. We all know bigots, and other vial and unpleasant people, hell, we may at times be those people. Much of this behavior is brought about by our beliefs. Oh well, in the end we just die anyway.

So if we let go of the desires, of the delusions, of the things, how little do we need?
