Humanly Stuck

Not only is it human to err, but it’s also strictly from being humanly stuck that one attaches to wanting things different which causes one’s own suffering…

If you really want to know what the basic flaw seems to be that keeps one stuck to their own suffering, it’s attaching to our humanness to a fault. It’s not that we aren’t human or that we’ll be able to transcend our humanness, it’s more so to find a way to embrace it, but not be stuck in it. It will always be succumbing to our human side in some way that causes our suffering. It doesn’t have to be attached to, but it will take discipline so the mind settles to see this. It’s always human to want things different and it’s always attaching to the story of being human that causes suffering. This is true regardless of the circumstances.

It’s always the human side that wants something different and it’s the charade of being human that pulls one into suffering. I ordered something a shirt on line and when it was were delivered I tried it on and it didn’t fit. By my first reaction you would have thought I was going to have to go shirtless, but that wasn’t the case. I attached to it and didn’t accept the fact that the shirt didn’t fit. This is what attaching to being human does and when I saw how childish this was, the wanting things different fell away and I was able to simply send the shirt back. You can substitute the shirt with anything and you’ll get the same childish results of suffering. This is all because not only is it human to err, but it’s also strictly from being human that one attaches to wanting things different which in turn causes you to be humanly stuck to your own suffering…
