Suffering Again

Student: What kind of a form is suffering? How can we know it? And how can we see through it?

Suzuki: Why we suffer is because everything which will give you suffering is something created by our mind. Everything you see is something created by your mind. Your suffering comes from something which is created by your mind. You are participating in creating some suffering. May not be just you, but you are acting main part of the play. And you create suffering. And you suffer from it.
