All suffering is a result of mistaken identity.
From the time we are children, we are told "who we are".
Our parents, our peers, and society have given us labels, which are really not true. These labels are simply words that point to us, but they are NOT us.
Over time, we assume that we are our mind-body-organism, when in reality, we are the formless! We are the magnificence that fills and pervades our form... and actually pervades everything. When we identify with our form, we take everything personally! All problems are personal.
So how do we go about discovering our true Self?
By doing self-inquiry...
Self-inquiry asks: "Who am I without my thoughts?
When you start to ask questions rather than assume you know all the answers, a whole new world can open up-
a peaceful world beyond good and bad.
If you would like to see inquiry in progress, you can watch this 58 minute movie with Byron Katie. Watch the ease with which suffering can dissolve into nothing...
