There are periods when we feel connected and alive, and there are other periods when we feel alienated and spent. Nothing wrong with that. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.

All of our suffering is self-created. This means that we use the mind to create difficulties where difficulties do not exist. Then we use the mind to try and alleviate the difficulties that the mind itself has created. Not to put too fine a point on it, but this is clearly nuts. No problem can be solved at the same level of consciousness that created the problem.

Not by anything that happens but by my thoughts about what happens.

It’s just that, isn’t it? My difficulty is I cannot look at anything without thinking about it.
