Have you ever wondered why we continue to experience so much suffering in our life?
We are incredibly intelligent creatures and we have the ability to resolve all of the suffering in our life within our lifetime. The only reason why we have not done this yet is because we have been looking in the wrong place. We have been looking for a resolution to our suffering in things rather than feelings, in doing rather than being, in separation rather than connection.
We can resolve the underlying cause of all of our suffering by experiencing connection. Connection is experienced when we truly feel love for the life that we are living and everything within it.
Albert Einstein wrote that ‘a problem cannot be solved by the same level of consciousness that created it’ and he was right. In order to resolve the suffering within our life we actually have to raise our level of consciousness.
We raise our level of consciousness through the experience of connection. When we experience connection we come into loving relationship. When we are in loving relationship we take loving action naturally, without any effort. When we take loving action we receive loving results and so the suffering which used to exist in our life simply dissipates.
The more love we feel the more connected we are, the more connected we are the more highly evolved we become and the more highly evolved we become the less suffering we experience in our life.
Mother Teresa complemented what Albert wrote with this: ‘the reward for love is in the loving, not in the result of loving’. When we experience connection we experience the happiness, freedom and fulfilment that we have always wanted. On top of this we also receive more from those whom we are interacting with; more support, more time and more possessions. More of the things we thought that we needed in order to feel happy, free and fulfilled. The funny thing is that we never needed those things at all, because as Mother Teresa wrote: ‘the reward for love is in the loving, not in the result of loving’.
The experience of connection has the power to resolve all of the suffering in our life. As our suffering is resolved, the suffering of everyone and everything in our life is also resolved. That is how powerful and how beautiful we really are.
We can resolve all of the suffering in our life within our lifetime and I believe that we will do this by experiencing connection together.
Welcome to a new way of life.
