In this episode, Teal explains that Suffering is a process. Therefore the most important question you are going to have to consider is HOW am I suffering? What are the exact mechanics of my suffering? Pain comes in response to something. Pain is a process. It is a response, whether it is emotional or physical. It happens when we resist something that we perceive. When you feel the hit of intense emotional of physical pain, close your eyes and ask yourself what did this pain come in response to? How is this process of suffering happening within me specifically? Only than can you address WHY you are suffering.
