There is a kind of suffering that has no end, it is circular in our patterns, choices, and is like a trap inside ourselves. Then, there is the kind of suffering that is developmental, which causes growth and awareness to occur inside the human being. The fundamentals of this kind of suffering involve, learning when to let go and surrender and when to stand and effect changes inside yourself and those around you. This kind of suffering will lead to a deeper understanding of yourself and others, to compassion, to love and forgiveness. Never to hurt, hate, condemnation nor violence.
As difficult as it may be to accept, one must always travel to the highest good, to be free of suffering.
