Moving away = suffering

 

Moving away is suffering.

Moving away from what’s here is suffering. It’s a moving away from ourselves, from who and what we are. And that’s painful.

So why not try the opposite? Why not try to move in?

How do I do that?

Rest with what’s here. Notice. Allow. Shift from thinking to noticing.

Feel the sensations.

Inquire into the images, words, and sensations. See what’s already here.

Relate to it with kindness. Love. Kind presence.

Find the love behind identifications, and the results of identifications. It comes from deep caring. It is love. (Even if it’s confused or worried love.)

When we move into this, we move into who and what we are. We return home, and that’s a relief.

There is more to it, of course. I’ll address some of it below.
