    Everyone is suffering and struggling. Even evil people do what they do because it is their effort to escape the misery of their existence. Look at school

      Everyone is suffering and struggling. Even "evil"
      people do what they do because it is their effort
      to escape the misery of their existence. Look at
      school yard bullies, who are very much in the news
      these days. Everyone thinks that what they do is
      wrong, but to them, it feels like they have some
      control in their life and this gives them some
      degree of self esteem. Yes, it is false, but so
      are most of the things that "good" people do to
      feel good about themselves. Their actions are merely
      temporary ones that soon end and the feeling of
      insecurity hits them again, and they then seek new
      ways to regain the feeling of security their
      "good" actions gave them. No different than the
      bully! The real answer is to find out who is the
      Real Self that is unchangeable, eternal, and always secure.

      Meditation is the best way to recognize the false,
      and see the true. When you see that the cause of
      your headache is because you have been hitting your
      head against the wall, you will stop it, and the pain
      will go away. Similarly, if you stop banging your head,
      the time you had wasted doing that can be used to
      finding things to do that actually soothe your head.
      That's how meditation works. You recognize the
      inappropriate, suffering causing things you have
      been doing, and replace them with the actions that
      enrich your life. Specifically, the more you
      meditate, the more at one you become with the
      inner Witness that is your Real Self. Unchanging,
      silent, ever aware. The pure consciousness that
      "Knows". It was present in you when you were just
      a baby and couldn't even label things as good or
      bad. It is still present and is the awareness that
      right this moment can witness any physical, mental, or
      emotional tension you are experiencing. And once
      recognized, puts you in the position of being able
      to change course to one that's much more beneficial.
      No more headaches, and a lot less damage to the
      walls you've been banging into also! Find a
      meditation technique or two that feel comfortable
      to you, and actually meditate. You will surely evolve
      and thrive.
