SUFFERING IS IN THE “I” OF THE BEHOLDER – “WE NEED INSIGHT NOT ISIGHT”

How do we see each moment? Why is it that someone might feel threatened or sad while someone else might feel calm and assured under similar circumstances? We all have our unique stories about who we believe we are. They were initially formed when we were young and in relationship with our caregivers. This has been subsequently shaped by our society. Everything that we are in contact with is referenced against our belief system that defines our identity. Does it agree or not? What we need to be able to do is to bring insight into how we see our experience through the Isight of who we believe we are. It is with this clarity that we can understand the true nature of reality and allow for non-attachment with our sense of self and rest in mindful awareness.
