Suffering

Avoiding suffering, turning away from suffering, prevents us from understanding what suffering is, prevents us from seeing suffering as it is.

And so we fear, we worry, we distract ourselves from our anxiety of suffering. And this non-understanding, non-seeing keeps us locked into the never-ending cycle of suffering.

Meditation is not about escaping. It is about realising the true nature of reality.
