' Suffering '...


One does not experience suffering - one suffers an experience.

One who is aware of his true identity does not, and cannot, suffer.

Everything has its place in the world as well as in our daily routine.

Devotion and reverence are all right, for example, so long as one recognizes them for what they are - affectivity - and to the extent a form of bondage.

But when one sees something for what it IS, it then loses its force and cannot effect any further bondage.
