One thing for sure is that if you are a human being and live long enough you will experience some pain and sufffering as you travel upon your chosen path. But that's not to say that we can't alleviate or even do away with the pain completely. Its just that as human beings we are prone to learn things the hard way. Why do you suppose so many parents just shake their heads while trying to get their kids to realize that they(the parent) have already learned a particuliar lesson the hard way by enduring pain and suffering, but even though the kids will not listen and will instead choose to learn the same lesson the hard way? Its because we must experience something for ourselves and no matter how many times someone else explains it to us we still cant see it clearly until we have gone through the experience for ourselves. Therein lies the reason we continue to experience more pain and suffering than we need to.But the ray of hope and truth that shines within our souls will show us the lessons without the physical and emotional pain when we learn to listen and truly take heed to that "small still voice" that speaks to us when we get our "little bloated ego" selves out of the way long enough.There are always many ways to "learn" the lessons of life we need without so much as a dusting of emotional and physical pain. It is a learned asset and I think we must take time to get to truly "know" ourselves. In the Science of Mind Textbook it states that this world is beginning to realize that it has learned all it should through pain and suffering. But even so I personally think we as a human family have a ways to go before we can really stop all the pain. But we have the potential to do that and I sincerely hope we can find the right methods to get this done quickly. And I hope all of you now find yourselves having learned "all" you need to by suffering any pain. May the future lessons be ones not fraught with pain and suffering. I will leave you with a quote from Nena O'Neill who states:"Out of every crisis comes the chance to be reborn." May all of you have a most blessed evening and new day tomorrow.And dont forget to do something nice for someone just because!
