Suffering is the movement away from presence.
It's not the circumstances that are causing it. It's not the person, not the situation, not you, not the events that arise in your life because it's so easy to place the responsibility out there. Not that. That's not what's causing suffering…
Suffering is a movement away from Presence.
Can I be here. Can I meet that. Can I really be in this place, because that is really what brings me back. That is what really brings us back to resting in our true nature. That is what brings us back to freedom.
