The followers said to J [Yeshua], ” Tell us how our end will be.” He said, “Have you discovered the beginning, then, so that you are seeking the end? For where the beginning is, the end will be.

To see the end of my pain is to see how it came about. And “how it came about” or “beginning” is not about the past but the NOW. It is about the immediate unquestioned thought that is causing my pain now. “He should not do that to me” – with this thought I feel the pain. My thought is the beginning and the pain is the follow up result.
What if I do not have that thought? Will I experience the pain?
There is no way I could control the thought of it arising but I have a choice to question it.
Which is more real to me – “He should not do that to me” or “He is doing exactly what he is doing”? How I perceive it becomes my reality. “Should” or “should not” is in reference to me. I can’t use “should” or “should not” without the “me” being around.
Am I seeing exactly what is happening in the world or am I creating a figment of an imagination or a story revolving around me? So long as “I am” is the center circumference of things around me, I will surely take possession of it as mine for I am the creator of that circumference. And thus the story I create becomes real to me and thus the beginning of my nightmare…
