Pain is a teacher.
It can blind you or it can teach you.
When you receive pain, often times, you have a choice.
You can let your pain blind you to that pain in others.
Or you can use it to learn to help yourself, and understand others.
You are not perfect.
There will be many times when you fail to live up to being the sort of person you want to be, but that doesn't mean you should give up.
There will be times in your life when you feel pain so intense, you don't think you can go on.
It will make you want to say, "To hell with it".
For if they can't help you with your pain, why would you choose to help someone else with theirs?
Life is short, right?
That trap is one of life's most insidious. But if you can somehow drive through it, you can gain a divine understanding.

"No pain, No gain!" Every dark cloud has a silver lining!

Easier said than done!

I once wrote this:

the world is pain, indubitably
that all of us have to undergo
bear torture and damage,incalculably
and inflict some, on friend and foe!


very nice post.
take care.

"Pain is a teacher.
It can blind you or it can teach you." Well said. It is worthwhile to remember the famous saying, 'Nanak dukhiya sab sansar'..... and then plod along. I also consider this to be the divine understanding that you allude to in the end.
