The sentences I want to check with you are:
- Reducing suffering (or eliminating it) is the main goal.
- The main reason we keep suffering is desire and aversion.
- We can experience craving to any of the five aggregates (e.g. thoughts) and also to the situation in general (e.g. become a teacher or become enlightened).
- We have tools to reduce desire and aversion (or promote this reduction in others). E.g. not-self, impermanence and dukkha. Jhana.
- This tools (3 characteristics, jhana, etc.) are truthful (they are not white lies).
- This tools lead to a "desinterest" (equanimity) that gives freedom. For example, by seeing pain as impermanent (as lasting briefly or nothing) then there is "desinterest" in it (equanimity to it), and as such there is a freedom to either experience it or not without suffering it.
- Ultimately it's best to be equanimous even to becoming enlightened (a case of bhava-tanha?), the tools ("the raft" that is abandoned after crossing the river), no-thoughts (aversion to thoughts?), etc.
That's it, feel free to make little corrections or flat out tell me there are big mistakes there. Thanks.
