I feel that maybe life is a test, we come here to achieve something, find ourselves, maybe remember who we are but we get caught up in life and forget our purpose.
We come to develop an understanding, find tolerance and compassion. Often this comes from the tests life give us, that we suffer on occasions ourselves opens our understanding of suffering. To feel pain we recognise the pain of others and in turn learn compassion. I know it sounds silly but it’s like anything, to experience is to understand.
When we find tolerance, we are able to meet life’s challenges head on, knowing that they will make us stronger and strengthen our soul.
Joy and pain are two sides of the same coin, like night and day, there is not one without the other. If we have an easy ride, well maybe that’s a life without meaning, recovery from the last or we are here to help others. I’m not sure we won’t know until the end, it’s all a mystery really.
