Namaste. Recently, I read in a book that
"Our soul is like electricity- a form of energy which can neither be created nor be destroyed but can be transferred from one form to another. The electricity (source) is the same, but it manifests in different forms (individuals) - as air from fan, as light from a bulb etc. So, if we understand that the same energy is manifesting in different individuals, there will be no room for anger, greed, jealousy etc."
Though the statement is convincing as it gives a practical example, how does one explain the different levels of suffering for different individuals? I mean, though everyone is the same, we all suffer differently. So we are bound to have anger, greed etc,.
