Suffering Is Optional

suffering is optional Suffering is nothing more than a frame of mind. It's foundation lies in resistance. Whatever is imposed on us that we resist, we suffer through. Whether it's in the box, on the mat, in the office or in a relationship, as soon as we resist through the doing, we suffer.

Test this. The next time you feel suffering, begin to explore what it is in the experience you are resisting. If you can recognize what you're pushing up against, reframe your mind and consciously accept that very thing. IMMEDIATELY suffering disappears...because pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional. YOU create YOUR reality, make it a good one.
