What is the Point of Suffering?
What is the point of suffering?
Unmani speaks about how we search for a point in life especially when there is suffering. We ask ‘why is this happening to me?’ or ‘what’s wrong with me?’. Unmani examines the core beliefs about ourselves that seem to perpetuate the suffering and the endless searching to fix it.
Dialogue 1: Beliefs about awakening, and how we add a special meaning to our experience, as well as a special identity of someone who suffers.
Dialogue 2: Examining what is this physical body and the identification with this body.
Dialogue 3: How we make a problem and an identity out of certain addictive behaviours. Seeing the source of this as agitation and fear.
Dialogue 4: The suffering that comes with the feeling of separation. How we stop ourselves from really loving others for fear of losing them. Acknowledging the heartbreak that is the real opening to life beyond separation.
