Honestly speaking, pain is our best friend. It is like soap, which is also a form of dirt, being used to remove the dirt that is stuck on us. The pain of losing a loved one can be replaced with the pain of knowing the One who truly loves us. The pain of loneliness, worry, and insecurities can be replaced with the pain of knowing that you have limited time in the human form to enjoy God. The pain of losing material gains in this world is far less than the pain you feel being away from your real home. We go through physical pains, which removes the pain of carrying all the burdens of our past actions. It is the pain of the longing for God that can melt you completely and free you from the pain of the cycle of birth and death. — Satish Daryanani
