Here are powerful ways to snap the spell of suffering in your life. As you read over each one, think about how you can use its insight the next time you are about to be washed away by any flood of painful thoughts or feelings. Welcome their higher influence into your life.

1. Suffering doesn't prove that you know what it means to care about yourself or others. What it does prove is you haven't seen through your own ideas about caring or you wouldn't be so careless with yourself.

2. Suffering doesn't prove that you are right. What it does prove is you don't really know right from wrong or you wouldn't take your position of pain as your proof of point.

3. Suffering doesn't prove that you are responsible. What it does prove is you have abandoned true self-responsibility or you wouldn't treat yourself so badly.

4. Suffering doesn't prove that you are important. What it does prove is you would rather feel like a 'someone ' who is miserable than be a 'no one' who is free and quietly happy.

5. Suffering doesn't prove that you are all alone in life. What it does prove is you prefer the company of unfriendly thoughts and feelings whose very nature is to isolate you from everything good.

6. Suffering doesn't prove that the world is against you. What it does prove is you have taken sides with that which is against everything...including yourself.

7. Suffering doesn't prove that you are real. What it does prove is you have identified with an agitated false feeling of life and confused it for the quiet fullness of real living.

8. Suffering doesn't prove that someone else is wrong. What it does prove is you will go to any lengths, including self-destruction, to prove that you are right.

9. Suffering doesn't prove that you are who you think you are. What it does prove is you don't know who you really are or you would never tolerate a suffering self as an identity.

10. Suffering over your suffering doesn't prove you want to stop suffering. What it does prove is you are afraid of the end of suffering because you think the end of it means the end of you. It does not.
