Right now we are escaping from pain and suffering with the only methods we have at hand and maybe those methods don’t work well for us any longer. By taking responsibility for our own lives and looking deeper into our actions and reactions, many things become clearer and less confusing. The realization that no one else is responsible or to blame for our transgressions is true freedom. As we look deeper into why we do what we do, we can see very simply that no one else is at fault and most importantly, neither are we. As we practice patience and no longer condemn or judge ourselves, we begin to see another way to live and this life is free from pain and suffering. When we look deeper we gain more insight, wisdom, and compassion and we break the cycles of the past.
