What creates the sense of suffering for me, and I feel for everyone really, is the sensation that our minds cannot relax and be with the truth of each experience, unless it is the way WE want it to be.
When we meditate we’re developing our emotional awareness to be with what IS happening. We’re able to pop out of our own experience and view ourselves ‘in the moment’. This helps bring some clarity into our own emotions and, in time, we become more comfortable with ourselves in any given situation. This leads to authentic self confidence and fear and suffering starts to dissolve.
For this month we will focus on dealing with suffering and difficult situations. We will see if we can LOOSEN our grip on trying to control each moment.
