Your pain is challenging you. Rise up from your sadness, frustration and low spirits, and allow the privilege of life's challenges to be your guiding companion. We are all just humble students of the world. What lesson does this painful majesty of life have for you today? The teacher can only provide the lessons, but the student ultimately decides what to learn. Life is a procession of painful lessons, and how precious those lessons are; so precious that we rejoice in the bitter-sweet gift of life. If you learn to look at the worldly madness through spiritual eyes, you will begin to see divine balance and sanity. Your suffering is not senseless. Your suffering is here to help you unfold and to awaken into compassion, love and strength. Your entire life has unfolded for your heart's ascension to love. Are you willing to accept its challenge?

Crossing the Rubicon of absolute pain is the only journey of purpose and meaning in life. Without your pain you are nothing but a spiritual embryo. Your pain offers you, the student, a choice of how you will receive the lesson. You can choose to let the pain harden your heart even more and close you off to the blessings of life. Or, you can allow the hammer of pain to split open the stone armor of your hardness; exposing the tenderness and beauty of your sweet spirit and sacred heart. Your pain is a divine rite of passage through which you will be reborn as a being of strength, wisdom and purpose. With your new eyes, you will see yourself and the world differently. With your new eyes, first look deeply at yourself, and see in yourself the divine architect's incomprehensible art! Your first realization will be that you are beautiful!

"It's so hard to forget pain, but it's even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace." — Chuck Palahniuk

Through spiritual maturity you will see new ways to avoid unnecessary suffering; wiser ways to endure unavoidable hardships with grace, and opportunities to turn your pain into lessons of service and healing for others. Your hard journey has had a great purpose! Your pain was always a part of a plan to open your heart to love. Have faith. A miracle is happening in your life; the miracle of pain is transforming you to your highest self.

"Pause and remember— The spiritual path is not always going to be smooth and easy. There are going to be difficult situations, hardships, losses and lessons. Don't lose faith along the way. You are exactly where you need to be." — Jenni Young

Its very beautiful. I need you to help me: just a second before I read this message, a client (I work at a shop) called me "wey" to refer to me. In Mexico, where I live, it is comon to friends to refer to each other by "wey", but neither am I his friend and "wey" is actually an irrespectful surname (meaning something like male cow). I got very angry at the client. How can I overcome my anger and forgive him? Please answer

THANKS! For 12 years I've been living with cancer, so I've had to endure a lot of physical and emotional pain... EVERY WORD you said is TRUE... also, I am bipolar, which gave me the agony of doing such strange things, without knowing WHY, until I was finally diagnosed at the age of 21. Pain is awful, but it is a part of life that we must DEAL WITH... in my Catholic faith: pain is Jesus asking you to carry His cross with Him... otherwise, you cannot say you are one of His followers. Carrying the cross with Him leads you to HEAVEN, where His Father-Our Father- gives you the ultimate reward... an eternity of a life of only the greatest JOY and PEACE and STRENGTH. Isn't that what we are longing for? Yes, I get angry and sad, due to my health issues... but I KNOW this is God's will for me... He makes NO MISTAKES... ACCEPTANCE of pain leads to PEACE OF MIND...
