The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Beyond suffering

 

The only way out of suffering is “through” suffering.
~ Cesar Teruel ~

We have tried everything to get rid of suffering.
We have gone everywhere to get rid of suffering.
We have bought everything to get rid of it.
We have ingested everything to get rid of it.

Finally, when one has tried enough, there arises the possibility of spiritual maturity with the willingness to stop the futile attempt to get rid of it and, instead, to actually experience suffering. In that momentous instant, there is the realization of that which is beyond suffering, of that which is untouched by suffering. There is the realization of who one truly is.
~ Gangaji ~
