The Wisdom of No Escape

Sometimes the only way to be free of something is to allow yourself to be fully trapped. Our desire to escape suffering creates it’s own bondage. Most of us are intially drawn to spirituality with the understandable desire to feel better and in general to be released from suffering.

But this desire in itself playes into the belief that something needs to be done about how we are feeling. that we need to somehow disappear a feeling by replacing it with the bliss or peace, or whatever we imagine freedom to be.

The truth of reality is that all is One. Which means that what you are feeling and trying to escape is part of totality. By wishing something away, we are setting ourselves up to be at odds with an aspect of ourselves. truth is inclusive, meaning that what you are feeling is included in what you are.
