We all want to be happy. We all have the right to be happy. It may even be said that the purpose of our life is to seek happiness. And yet, life can often seem like a series of disillusionments. Pain seems inevitable...
Perhaps pain is a kind of opportunity. A kind of invitation? If we are willing to really look at the pain we feel, it not only makes it much more likely that we will overcome it, but also that we will grow.
Whether we like it or not, this seems to be what is asked of us as human beings. Get to the heart of why we feel the way we do, and we become more fully human. And let our desire to escape suffering lead us to think, create, and strive, thereby fulfilling our potential.
