Before I met the Balanced View training I did not even think freedom from suffering was attainable. Ha ha :-). However, I discovered that by relying on open intelligence there was freedom from suffering amidst experiences of physical and emotional pain. I discovered that the suffering is created through my own resistance and that nothing can actually cause me suffering. I discovered that no amount of pain whether physical or emotional has any influence on who I truly am and that all appears in, of, as, and through great bliss.
It is really beyond anything that can be imagined with the mind that has been trained in reification. Only through trust in my teacher and the teachings was I able to experience this gradually. I will be forever grateful for the skilful guidance of the teaching that leads to increasing absence of suffering.
