Reader comment on Charlotte Joko Beck's passage ...

Willing to Experience our Suffering

Eventually all pain, even that which comes from emotional and mental energies, can become physical if it's left to continue in a disconnected fashion that we recreate each day. Most of us can feel physical pain in this reality but we all don't need to feel suffering. It's a choice not a requisite progression, some can embrace their pain and it diminishes while others can embrace their suffering and it leads them to further understanding of themselves. Or we can bypass attaching ourselves to pain through emotional and mental constructs and creating suffering. This too can illuminate our path to understanding and accepting ourselves as the creators of our lives.
