THE BLESSING OF SUFFERING

JOHN MCINTOSH

EVERYONE … is ‘precisely’ where they are for one Purpose: ‘To become Aware of WHO They Really Are’. This Awareness does not and cannot come through the mind since the mind is an illusion. It arises through the ‘feelings’ [not to be confused with the emotions]. Feelings are associated with the ‘Intuitive’ faculty [the direct communication from the ONE SELF ‘to’ IT SELF [sleeping in the dream-world-universe]].


This communication occurs naturally when the mind is ‘out-of-the-way’. However, most have been completely engrossed in the delusional body-mind-identity called ‘me’ and as a result rarely HEAR Truth. This false-self arose out of the ‘conditioning [attachments, expectations and identifications] that came about from the original ‘separation’ belief and it is that conditioning that is the author of one’s destiny [all of it]. Since conditioning is ‘always’ dysfunctional the play of one’s experience is laden with suffering as it rides the roller coaster between happiness and sorrow.


However, it is this suffering that brings about a state of ‘surrender’ when the mind becomes exhausted with its endless failed attempts to control the world-dream it calls reality. This is why ‘vulnerability’ ‘is’ power … it is the KEY that opens the door to ‘feeling’ and the Truth that flows through that door.


Currently, the collective- consciousness is in deep suffering and consequently an enormous opportunity now exists for it to HEAR the ‘still-small-voice’ of Truth and surrender to Its beneficent guidance, which always leads the wanderer Home.
