Suffering: Part 3

Genesis of suffering

Suffering is an emotional experience spawned from fear. Life is all energy. Energy can be manifested in either love or fear. All behaviors are therefore derived from either fear or love. Fear is exhibited in the form of anger, anxiety and depression. Anger is a bubble of fear burst open.

Coping with suffering

Suffering can be described as feelings of hopelessness or rejection, even a sense of abandonment. It’s a feeling of being unworthy, unlovable and a failure. Suffering arises from feelings of guilt, anger, depression and despair. Suffering is tolerated because there seems to be no choice. Yet, it creates a feeling of silent desperation screaming inside your head. Suffering is: pain so intense it cannot be soothed, a fire so hot it cannot be doused, an itch so tingly it cannot be scratched. Suffering is that feeling of emptiness. You are so alone, even in a crowd. Suffering is no fun at all.

On the other hand, because suffering is an emotional response, you will know people who have pain and choose not to suffer, just as there are those who suffer intensely with no real pain. For many, the suffering without pain is the more difficult to endure.  When you cannot tolerate the suffering anymore, you are ready to change; hypnotherapy can help.

The power to choose is everyone’s God-given gift. The power to choose is a mostly neglected and unused talent. Most people are blinded by fear to see the many options before them. They are so afraid to make choices that often they fail to make choices for themselves; they give over that power to others to choose for them. Who is better qualified to make choices for you than you? Are you afraid to take advantage of your own power? How sad that so many lack the courage to accept responsibility for making their own choices!
