"Why me?!"

Posted on May 20, 2012 at 4:39 PM
Along the same lines as my last post about "fear", I have been thinking a lot about "suffering" in general. The Buddha understood that some suffering is just part of life. He said something to the effect of us experiencing in our lifetime, ten thousand joys and ten thousand sufferings. Jesus said it slightly differently, "In the world you shall have tribulation." But similar to when we experience fear, most of us prefer to run and hide or numb our selves in one addiction or another. Often times, we try to find a reason or something or someone to blame for our suffering. What if instead of asking why, we just accepted what we were feeling even if it was pain or hurt or saddness. If we were not stuck in the blocking or blaming and just felt what we were feeling, perhaps it would be easier to find our way to compassion, forgiveness and even joy.
