If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.
We spiritual travelers are certainly not immune to pain. Yes, walking a spiritual path can be an uphill struggle, but once we are invited to join, we simply have no choice but to follow. You can't help changing your perspective along the Way. We don't associate the pain with others, we zoom into the problem instead. Walking the Tao we know that every messenger, bearer of good news and bad, is here to help us. Change, we embrace you - problems, we welcome you as much as all moments of bliss!
