Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

11 Aug

The fact of pain is easily brought within the focus of awareness. With suffering it is not that simple. To focus suffering is not enough, for mental life as we know it, is one continuous stream of suffering. To reach the deeper layers of of suffering you must go to its roots and uncover their vast underground underground network, where fear and desire are closely interwoven and the currents of life’s energy oppose, obstruct and destroy each other.

— Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That’, p 278
