    Suffering as Grace! 

    Suffering stinks but it is grace from the Universe! Suffering is what makes us grow immensely. Suffering prepares the ground for exercising compassion, courage, and humility. In my life at least, suffering has made me grow immensely… I will go farther and say that most spiritual (or personal) growth has come from suffering.

    Despite that, there is no way in hell that I will knowingly cause suffering to someone.

    Each soul is potentially divine. The goal it to manifest this divinity within by controlling nature — external and internal. Do this either by *work* or worship or psychic control or philosophy — by one or more, or all of these — and be *free*. This is the whole of religion. Doctrines or dogmas or rituals, or books or temples or forms are but secondary details. (Swami Vivekananda)
