Finding The Gifts In Suffering

Give me a dollar and I will be happy. Give me a billion dollars and I will be suspicious, scared and wary. Such is human nature. Such is human suffering - we have it all, yet we are untrusting.

“We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival.”

Winston Churchill, 1874 – 1965, Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Nobel Prize Winner (Literature), Historian

You are like a free herbivore, with acres of greens across you to devour upon. All yours.

You are like a child with a hundred shades of colors moving before your eyes that stimulate you. All yours.

You may run free, but you may not trust the world outside of your gates, now. 

I understand this. I am alike too.

But I understand something else as well — the gifts, the pastures were created for us; the walls were created by us too.

Only a creator can undo its creation. And so only we can pull the walls down.

Only we can reveal ourselves to the gifts that were created for us.

We are all deserving, as the way we are born, as the way we exist — as the way we must live.

“Give me a dollar and I will be happy. Give me a billion dollars and I will be suspicious, scared and wary. Such is human nature. Such is human suffering – we have it all, yet we are untrusting.” – Vishal Singh
