Suffering can be thought of as pain plus avoidance of what is. If one eliminates avoidance – pain is still there but without the suffering.
As one expands ones consciousness from ego-centered to ethno-centered to world-centered it becomes more and more apparent that at our core we are all one and in this space there is experiencing without the resistance to whatever it is we are experiencing in the moment.
And it is here where suffering ends.
I do not know much about Ken Wilber and his teachings – do you? Would love to learn of your experiences with his work – as well as any suggestions for further study.
