Relations are the glue that holds us and everything together. They are memories and bonds that form in our minds as we progress through experiences. We tend to forget that there is a greater and invisible relation among everything that makes any other kind of relation unneccessary, that is a connection. When we realize this, it frees us from the web of relations.
This is the concluding part on the topic of suffering where the spiritual kind of suffering is discussed. It is a state of unhappiness, dissatisfaction, aimlessness, meaninglessness and sense of bondage in spite of the absence of the rest of the four kinds of suffering. The cure is very natural, there are no tricks, and this suffering is actually a blessing in disguise.
