Q: “Lots of suffering going on with all of this uncertainty over the virus. How do we witness the suffering without suffering?” New MJ Awakening Blog

LINDSEY: Lots of suffering going on with all of this uncertainty over the virus. How do we witness the suffering without suffering? Feels difficult in this moment.

MICHAEL: Wholeness is always already the case and the virus doesn’t change that. Nothing does. However, as long as the me is there, there will be suffering because the me takes it personally. But nothing is personal. Nothing. All is a passing appearance, but the me takes it to be real because it takes itself to be real. The me is an appearance and has no power at all.

We’ll go into this more at next Sunday’s 3/22, 6pm (pst) online satsang. And if that’s too far off, I am available for one-on-one sessions via skype, zoom or phone (by donation).

p.s. 

JILL: People have died/ are dying from this virus….so why wouldn’t there be suffering by those affected?

MICHAEL: If suffering is arising then that’s what is. But it’s not “your suffering”… the suffering is not personal. But the me takes everything personally. It has no choice.

JILL: OK that makes sense…thank you!!
