A kind of frontier


It is possible to attain a state where we are free from suffering. We free ourselves from suffering by being fully in the conversation, rather than something static,  having a conversation at every turn. As an individual, I must learn to live at a kind of frontier between what I think is me and what I think is not me, so that my identify  is more of a meeting place; an edge between past and present rather than an island around which the events of life swirl and move on…Even grief and loss, if felt in a timeless way, can be free from disconnection or suffering.
