Embrace your Darkness and Suffering to Heal

We will have suffering, you can be guaranteed of it. But you can ease it, transcend it. Use it. Grow profoundly from it, and most importantly overcome it. Further you can not only do this for yourself but for other people as well. Now, imagine that on a worldwide and universal scale.

Embrace your Darkness and Suffering to Heal and grow in your life. Suffering is very much a part of re-birth and life rather than a part of death and endings. Suffering is a great teacher and it is through times of personal darkness and despair that we can transform the most.

When we crash emotionally into the dark night of the soul and experience suffering in life, it can be overwhelming. We can go into a slump, without warning, overnight. But we can also choose another path and find a way to heal and grow through suffering. What data shows is how much time that takes can be a personal choice.

Between pleasure and pain, pain is the better teacher. It brings about more transformation than pleasure, which oftentimes leads straight back to suffering.

Friedrich Nietzsche said that “He who has a why to live can bear almost any how” Nietzsche was an expert on suffering and obsessed with the pursuit of pleasure which he wrote about in his book The will to Power. He eventually drove himself mad in his pursuits and never found the pleasure that he believed was the meaning of our lives. Not love or God, or meaning as most of us perceive it today; nor as the greatest teachers of old, Like Jesus, or Buddha, or Lao Tzu ever did. Interesting in his madness and suffering, he once saw a horse being whipped in the streets and ran out, embracing the horse, to free it from the cruelty. Almost a total contradiction in terms to his life-long beliefs! In the end he showed kindness, love and mercy. Traits he never valued until the end. Until the suffering took his life, which happened shortly after the incident. Love is the desire to see unnecessary suffering ameliorated.

We will have suffering, you can be guaranteed of it. But you can ease it, transcend it. Use it. Grow profoundly from it, and most importantly overcome it. Further you can not only do this for yourself but for other people as well. Now, imagine that on a worldwide and universal scale.

As our world suffers today, so it grows. The softening, opening up and internal shifts we are taking towards love and vulnerability for planet, self, other and God is palpable today, as it rises from a depressed, addicted and stuck culture that has already started to believe hedonism, self-obsession, glorification of busy, and personal gain don’t work for anybody. We are the most technologically advanced, comfortable and most oblivious generation that have ever lived. With everything on demand, we are able to change our very feelings on a whim. We can eat any produce from anywhere in the world, all year round. We can have almost anything we want. But the big issue is what we have got is more suffering. Not more pleasure. With about 50 percent of Americans on depression meds, or addicted, things are starting to change. Drugs, hedonism, obsession with sex, selfishness and personal gain and the idea of excess is being reconsidered as suffering rises in our collective consciousness.

Today, no one needs to suffer unnecessarily more than they have to. When suffering comes we can and will bear it eventually. We will always be able to overcome, even if it is just through acceptance and surrender to what it is that we are suffering. When we argue with reality, when we go against yin and yang, laws of attraction and even human values like patience, generosity and kindness or mindfulness, our own suffering and that of those around us will increase. Rather, today, you are encouraged to embrace your Darkness and Suffering to Heal and grow in your life.

If there is a meaning in life at all, then there must be a meaning in suffering. Suffering is an ineradicable part of life, even as fate and death. Without suffering and death, human life cannot be complete – Viktor E. Frankl
