Is Suffering Necessary?

In the present moment suffering doesn’t exist, this isn’t because unpleasant things don’t happen, suffering doesn’t exist because there just isn’t a need to label it as so.

Is Suffering Necessary? The answer to this question has nothing to do with what happens in your life, it has to do with attaching to what happens. There will be many unpleasant things that occur in life, but they’re considered unpleasant only because that’s how they’re labeled and this is where the suffering arises from. This labeling process is at our core, but without it the creation that there’s a you who doesn’t like what’s happening would never arise. Also without the unpleasant attached label, one wouldn’t need for things to be different so there wouldn’t be a need to try and make things pleasant; after all trying to make life pleasant is how life is mostly lived. Always wanting life pleasant is why so many are in a state of discontentment, it has nothing to do with what’s going on out there, it has everything to do what’s going on inside. Nothing can cause discontentment unless it’s allowed and it’s only allowed because it’s not known how not to allow it.

The question, is suffering necessary will be answered by most without investigating it. Because of the conditioning in place most people will just go with what society and the so called experts have to say. To much is taken on the whim without looking to see the underlying truth and this is why the world is in a state of confusion. The disdain you have for something or someone is the disdain you have for yourself, without a settled mind this will not be seen so the suffering energy will continue to be the controlling energy in place. Disdain breeds disdain, always and suffering leads to suffering, always. To me suffering isn’t necessary, and in the present moment I have found it doesn’t exist, not because unpleasant things don’t happen, but because they just aren’t labeled as so.
