Souce of Suffering

I was interviewed on a radio show this week, and one of the questions that I was asked pertained to the source of suffering. All suffering relates back to our turning away, to our forgetting God. He is the Source of all Love, peace, and joy, and when we try to go through this dream without an awareness of His Love and our Oneness with that Love, we get the opposite of Love, peace, and joy. Suffering takes many forms, but it always comes back to the above truth. In a way, that is very comforting, because you cannot change suffering by working within the suffering. You cannot find Truth within the illusion. I am not saying to not be compassionate or be of service, but carry with you the knowing that suffering is not alleviated by trying to "fix" the problem. You will never be able to fix the problem, because illusions cannot be fixed. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by an infinite number of solutions that may temporarily work, see the suffering from a higher perspective. As you see it from a God perspective, you will no longer see the suffering in the way that you previously did. And when you change to to the higher perspective, when the Light of your awareness shines on everything, those that are "experiencing" the suffering will also begin to see it differently.
