“If we take eternity to mean timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.” – Ludwig Wittgenstein
Day 22 – The End of Suffering
My vision of healing is the end of suffering.
Aham Brahmasmi (The true nature of my self is the wholeness of the universe.)
Message of the Day
Today’s meditation shows us that the spiritual journey into the heart of awareness, the present moment, is not an idle, impractical indulgence. Realizing our true nature as ever-present awareness is how we attain our full human potential. In reclaiming our timeless essence, we release ourselves from the bonds to our past and future. Those bonds are what keep us in separation, fear, and suffering. As we step into the here and now, we heal our past and come to the end of suffering.
- A basic human need is the pursuit to end suffering and pain. Write down three things that you find painful in your daily life right now. What can you do to heal them?
- Relationships and connection are key parts of ending suffering in the world. You have the power to alleviate someone’s suffering right now, even in a small way. Write down some things that cause pain in someone else’s life who is close to you. What can you do to bring healing or relief to them?
- No matter your political affiliation or world view, suffering exists across the globe. It can be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Write down three things you believe create the most suffering in the world today. What would the world look like if every being on the planet connected to the wholeness of consciousness? What is one step you can take to creating that vision of a united world?
- Reflect further on your experience today.
