Freedom from Suffering

A teacher said, “A person who tried to measure the amount of suffering in life would have to give up before they had barely begun. There is just too much.  There are just too many different kinds.”

“But some people are free from suffering. How?  Because they are able to tell where suffering comes from.”

“You can do this, too, by making it a point to notice your thoughts and see how they set you up to suffer.”
