Personal suffering is objectively worthy of celebration, and subjectively of despair?


In suffering we attempt to get a grip on ourselves. Clutch onto awareness. Summon our pride. Tally up reason, perception and thought. We come alive and take ownership of the experience of pain and that is how we "accept" it in maturity. When a certain pain threshold is reached, we sprint in the opposite direction. All is abandoned in haste as one does his possessions in a consuming fire. Suddenly we objectify pride, motives, actions, and consciousness, but with as much effort as futility, until finally we collapse into complete and total humility and that is how we "receive" the pain.

    A beautiful answer to a great question, cheaptrick. JL we receive the Light from Adversity, or wisdom from the experience. Only when human capacity ends. Where then is this free will? Food for thought. Hari Om!
