What’s permanent in me? This body is not permanent, the mind is not permanent, intellect is not permanent, ego is not permanent, and it’s changing, from a small child to an old person, and then we die. So, we see the cycle of life and existence, and we decided- nothing really matters. Even if you try to hold on to any possessions, positions, status, or stature, nothing stays.

But I started feeling that if I’m delivering more to this world within my capacity, that brings me more happiness and satisfaction.

This is very important to understand, limiting beliefs exist, and limiting beliefs are really, really important to understand and come out of.
Suffering is connected to your waking state mind. Pain is connected to various factors such as injury, body, going through certain processes. Pain can happen, but suffering is your choice. Suffering happens when resistance happens to the pain. When we resist situations, when we resist emotions, when we resist people, places, time, we have suffered. But suffering is not a permanent thing. When you are experiencing pleasure, necessarily, you may not suffer. But sometimes even during pleasure, at the time of pleasure, we may suffer because we worry that this time also may end.
