Nature of suffering

I like to question the nature of suffering because we tend to just shut down and say, “I’m suffering” without really examining it. Suffering seems to be a combination of many dynamic factors…it’s quite raw and vibrant if we don’t shut down. But it is hard to relax and experience the fullness of it.

To objectify something means to see it in a one-dimensional way. To see something as one-dimensional requires that we contract around it – narrow our experience. ….. …but nothing is one-dimensional – all things are full and open-dimensional because they are changing and open to interpretation.

As a realization this is quite liberating because it means we are never stuck. Where do we draw the line between suffering and happiness? Sometimes what we consider painful leads to a greater understanding and sense of wellbeing ~ Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel
