Who is suffering?
"The level of cognitive macro-construction - where ideas of self and other, success and failure, worth and worthlessness all occur - is a minefield of triggers and snares. Below this threshold - where thoughts and feelings and emotions flow in and out of the mind without definition and without a chance to become established - a person can find some freedom to not be the one who suffers." Olendzki A. "Unlimiting Mind. The Radically Experiential Psychology of Buddhism." Wisdom Publications, Boston, 2010.
