It’s extremely important to investigate the causes or origins of suffering, how it arises. One must begin that process by appreciating the impermanent, transient nature of our existence. All things, events and phenomena are dynamic, changing every moment: nothing remains static.
The ability to look at events from different perspectives can be very helpful. Then, practising this, one can use certain experiences, certain tragedies to develop a calmness of mind. One must realise that every phenomenon, every event, has different aspects. Everything is of a relative nature.
