So there we go ..... Your suffering is the movement of a couple of little electrical impulses in your brain!
How do we know these electrical impulses are ours? And not just picking up what is going on with life? And as such what we think are our thoughts are just side effects. When we think we are changing our thoughts it is really just how it goes. As players of life, we get to indulge a self that believes thoughts are actually under our control and are "ours".
