The Concept of Legitimate Suffering; or paying with pain

2 07 2007

life ain’t pretty; it ain’t a cakewalk either

at every moment, we have the choice to make decisions; or we can choose not to

there is free will at all stages

by not exercising our choice. we let others make the decisions for us;

we have abnegated, abandoned our own sovereign responsibilities

no wonder things don’t work out as we had hoped; we didn’t exercise our choice

the result is often pain (here a mental kind)

it’s nature’s way of letting us know we aren’t in harmony

the feedback mechanism has kicked into play

True, we must be willing to make our own choices. Of course, not making a choice is a choice.

It is impossible to obtain compassion without a measure of suffering.
