“Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.” ~ Dalai Lama
Pain sucks; it hurts, feels constricting, and can add significant hurdles when attempting to achieve peace. However, pain can be a great motivator for change, as one dives into the source of the pain through self-inquiry and reflection. Now, I am not suggesting to become sadistic, and sending out invitations to pain for the sake of ‘higher learning’. More so to welcome that which approaches your door-step, because they are knocking from the inside, hoping you will finally hear and answer their call-for-love with compassion.
