All Suffering arises from thought.
- Sri Amma
Thought separates you & the other. It divides You, the experience & the experienced. Thought contains measurement; compared with the past & comments whether the present experience was more or less... comparing past & present. When there are no thought you & the experience become one, the complete experience gives you joy. The thoughts make the experience incomplete & leads to suffering. Watch yourself, whenever you have thoughts, it separates you & the other & gives birth to suffering.
That’s why our Lord says thought itself is suffering.
