      Could someone please explain. Suffering and
      consciousness are identical.

      BOBBY G.

      My take on a possible answer would be that
      everything is Consciousness. Suffering is not a
      synonym for Consciousness but it could not have its
      relative existence without it.

      Nisargadatta says (p399 of I Am That)
      "Consciousness is always of obstacles; when there
      are no obstacles, one goes beyond it."

      JAMES

      Yes. Identification is suffering. One can only
      'know' what one is not.

      PRACTICE

      Here is something you could try, let everything be
      your practice. Whatever you do, let it be done with
      presence and care.

      washing the dishes
      going to the store
      playing with the kids
      having pizza
      bumping bones with someone
      mowing the lawn
      shoveling shit
      delivering pizza
      flying a plane
      delivering a baby!

      You know, just whatever you find yourself doing.
      Let it be practice - of what?
      Being just being, which of course you already are - just being.
      No need to make too much of it.
      After all, ordinary activity is buddha activity.
