3 key reasons why you believe you are your body

Suffering is not caused by pain but by resisting pain

The mind does not tell the difference between suffer and pain.
The truth is that pain and suffer are two different things. Pain (emotional or physical) is a feeling, a feeling of a thing undesirable that is there in the body or in the psyche, a thing that inflicts a feeling of pain (a painful emotion, an injury etc.) while suffering is our response out of identification with the pain. Watch it and you will see the difference by yourself.

Perhaps the primary tool on the enlightenment path is to accept and observe whatever is, any thought, any feeling, any sensation.
