In order to be able to stay present in the experience of suffering, we have to able to rest there. Bringing awareness to the suffering of ourselves and others is a very loving thing to do. It also strengthens endurance in times of suffering. In the process of doing this, we can discover that pain and suffering are not the same. Practicing this simple meditation extends stability and the energy to be able to stay with suffering, which expands our ability to love. The practice can be done as a quick standalone meditation, or as part of a practice session for something like the Four Immeasurables.
