No matter where we go, we cannot escape from the sufferings that are part and parcel of life. If we cannot avoid these sufferings, then our only choice is to understand and overcome them. Since we have no choice but to overcome them, then we might as well live joyfully and vigorously while doing so.
Consider the alternative – living defeated and slugging through life. We have a choice, but the best answer though obvious is not the easiest. Our truth is not something outside to be discovered, it is something inside to be realized.
Peace and Love, Jim
