When you get right down to it, suffering doesn’t come to us, it comes through us. It originates from the depths of our beings, from our destructiveness. What happens is that we all become busy little bees, trying to figure out how to avoid, reduce or eliminate our suffering. But since we are presently chained to this world of duality, our typical methods don’t work.
For in our minds eye we see two forces that oppose each other. One is good, or constructive, and the other is bad, or destructive.

And of course our problem, we think, is whatever is causing us to suffer.
The bigger problems lies in the way we automatically begin to shield ourselves from actually seeing whatever is destructive within us. We deny. We avoid. We repress. We lie to ourselves and others.
