“The resistance to what is, is the cause of all suffering.” Buddha
In other words, we cause ourselves to suffer when we resist or don’t accept what is. Our current reality.
How does this happen?
An event occurs. We create a story or negative emotion about the event, which now creates suffering. Now we have directed some of our precious energy to this story we created. We have created constant, slow leak of energy from our heart energy to maintain this story and the suffering attached to it.
Before we proceed I must clarify…
The suffering I am referring to is not what we feel when we have physical pain or pain from intense grief or trauma. These feelings are very real and need to be felt and worked through in the time it takes you to work through them.
What I am referring to is when, during the course of our day, someone does something or something happens and a judgment gets placed on it, a story is created about it…it is taken personally and before you realize, it has taken up residence in your head and has been added to all of the other terrible things that you feel have happened.
So what if your lunch order was wrong or someone else got the office you wanted or the market ran out of what you wanted to buy or if no one noticed your new hair cut…ever hear yourself saying…why does this always happen to me?
The great danger in suffering is what becomes of it.
It becomes the incessant negative dialogue in your head about how terrible your life is with all this suffering. It becomes an excuse for you to avoid a full life. In your body suffering may manifest itself/cause depression, addictions, phobias, violence, anxiety, fears, overeating, abuse and many more illnesses.
Suffering will never, ever change what is. Suffering will attach itself to you and may very likely cause a physical condition that you will not like either. So why choose suffering when it is optional?
Your choices are to accept what happened, change it if you can or just let it go.
Dear humans, please know that our mission as spiritual beings having a human experience is to reduce our resistance to what is, creating a higher vibration in us, allowing us to become non-resistant so we can ascend to our next level of consciousness.
Suffering is not in this equation.
