Navigating Pain and Suffering
How does one maintain a higher perspective when the pain and suffering of this 3D world feel endless and all-consuming?
What we define as pain and suffering is a learned perspective. Physical pain exists as a signal that reads "attention here", and emotional pain exists to do the same. Why does one believe that there is endless pain and suffering? Where did this perspective arrive? When observing with the senses, does one witness this, or is it projected from another source onto self? If one is in an environment where pain and suffering are constant, are there other options available to explore?
There is another perspective that exists. All that is, is. The yin and yang are perceptives based on one´s experience, influences, and state of being. This can be transcended when one accepts all things as beneficial when one sees all beings as on their divine path, and all experiences as divine. From this perspective, there is no pain, and there is no suffering.
How does one make the leap from the point of view observed now, to this state of neutrality? Practice. Practice, practice, practice. Expand one's view to include all possibilities, not just the one being projected into the mind. Ask self "what if I am only seeing a tiny piece of the puzzle? What if there are other things going on here? What is the bigger picture?
Also note that wherever one's attention goes, will be amplified in their experience. Do you seek things that are joyous and easygoing?
