“Whenever you say I am suffering, it means that you are running away from suffering.
Because if you could turn around and confront the suffering, soak in it, embrace it, fall in love with it, be with it, accept it, do all these things.
Then see for yourself what happens!
The best thing is to embrace it and the strangest part is you will find sooner or later you will develop this art and every time suffering comes, you would embrace it and it becomes joy.
The first thing is seeing.
When it comes to inner problems or inner growth or spiritual progress, you have to learn the art of seeing.
What is there is not important for us, but you must ‘see’ what is there.
The key thing here is you have to get into a state where seeing is occurring all the time.
When seeing happens, all suffering ceases because to see is to be free.
There is no effort involved, there is no time involved.
Confronting your self-centeredness, though the word is misleading, it simply means that you just become aware that this is what you really are and you never thought that you are that.
It is so and it is there, that is all.
The mere seeing is sufficient.”
