I get it now.... Narcissus fell in love with his own reflection... I am your reflection.... Oh, Maguru! How sweet!
I'm all talked out on the subject you asked me about (if it's so easy to choose peace or let go of suffering, why haven't we?), and you seem to be nearing a melt-down, so I'll sign off this conversation with you.
And as I mentioned, there is no requirement
as far as I'm concerned that you let go of your suffering, or that you choose peace. I'm sorry it drives you batsh*t that I insist you can. I would have thought it would be far more rankling to be told you are powerless and limited, but go figure. If you believe this:
You cannot choose to be happy. You either are or are not. You cannot choose to be encouraging. You either are or not. You cannot choose peace. You either are peace or you are not. Being is not choice.
...then it certainly is true for you. In that case, you have answered your own question, and asking me was extraneous. Why don't we choose peace? Because we cannot choose peace. You are either at peace or you are not.
Of course, it's not true for me, but then I've got that Dopamine Superpower.
