The Root of All Suffering

The root of all suffering…

DAILY, I remind myself, my loved ones, friends, and clients, that the root of all suffering is wanting things to be different than they are. Things are as they are. We suffer because we want things to be different. All these expectations that feed our frustrations with whatever it is that we want to be different in our lives. If it is not in your control to change whatever has a hold of your mind…Let GO, and LET be.


“Accept it…. whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it… This will transform your whole life. 

You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you.

True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic. True power is restraint 

If words control you, that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.”

~Eckhart Tolle
