Flow

Pain is physical, but suffering is mental.

Outside of the mind there is no suffering.

Pain is essential for the survival of the body, but none compels you to suffer.

Suffering is entirely due to clinging or resisting;

it is a sign of our unwillingness to move on, to flow with life.

    .1987 – 1981, eh? Clearly he learnt to master time and to flow with life in a highly unusual fashion! 😀

    1. Hi Shielagh, Everyone is being very observant today! Thanks for commenting; have revised the post. Although I think Ben’s comment about bending the rules of time is quite intriguing, Best wishes, Karl
