Excerpt: We do this because we want to be in harmony with the flow of things. We want to have no effort. And we do this because we realize that we struggle all the time and we are not in harmony with the flow of things, which is the first noble truth of Buddhism, that there is suffering in the world. And usually suffering comes upon us as a sense of being out of harmony, out of sync, with our circumstances. Wishing they were different. Out of sync with our own minds. Wishing they were different and wishing our minds had different things in them. So we could say we do this because we have become aware of suffering, but that is not enough because just to become aware of suffering might lead us to give up.
