Two things are guaranteed: death and taxes. To these, you can also add sweet experiences along with bitter ones. The bitter ones actually make us better. The only growth from sweet experiences is gratitude but, bitter ones can break us and test our faith. It is easy to say we love God but, let’s see if you love God through the real bitter situations. I know of many who have lost faith and have blamed God. There is one good news. After the bitter taste goes, you will soon have a lot of sweet experiences. Many disciples have to go through bitter experiences when their spiritual Masters leave their bodies. The sweet experience comes when the Masters become yours completely. All that you ever wanted from them is now available. One Master and one exclusive disciple, no more sharing or waiting to be with them. Bitterness can bring sweetness. — Satish Daryanani
