Meditation is reflection of the arising & cessation of Dukkha and causes of it correctly.
Dukkha (Constant Renewing & Vanishing of Five Aggregates) arises because of ‘thirst’ (tanha) via misunderstanding the CREATED TRUTHS (Relative truths) as reality, and it ceases because of wisdom (right understanding).

‘Thirst’ and wisdom are both within the Five Aggregates renewing & vanishing constantly, Thus, the germ of their arising as well as that of their cessation are both within the flux of the Five Aggregates.

This means that the Truth can be found within the flux of the Five Aggregates (Dukkha), This also means that there is no external power that produces the arising and the cessation of dukkha (Ever-Renewing & Vanishing of Five Aggregates).

The arising of Dukkha is on account of ‘Thirst’ via misunderstanding the CREATED TRUTHS (Relative truths) as reality,
The cession of Dukkha is on account of ‘Detachment’ via ‘ wisdom’ that realizes the misunderstanding the created truths(relative truths) as reality.
