When suffering arises separation is created. There is a “me” and the thing that that is causing the suffering. Most often we turn away from the suffering; we run, we hide, we deny, we numb out, we will do almost anything but turn and face into the wind and look into the heart of our suffering. What is this thing called suffering? If we open fully and feel it all the way into the heart of our suffering we discover that it is not separate from us at all. Ultimately there is no separation. There is a moment melting into the One and in that moment we see that suffering is just an opportunity to awaken to Truth.
What creates separation in your life? How to you deal with suffering? See if you can turn and face it fully and discover the truth it holds for you. Use this practice as often as you can in the next few days. Notice how you suffer over minor things, like being stuck in traffic, unset over being late, disappointed when a goal is not met. How is it to face the wind?
