The first type of suffering is based on the laws of karma, where a small portion of your debits and credits is being taken care of. The second type is for those who want to evolve faster. Within that, there are two types of suffering. First is mental where you may face challenges and, at the same time, try to maintain your equanimity. Spiritual Masters have control over their minds, so they only get the second option, which is physical suffering. The more layers you want to experience from within, the greater the challenges. They are meant to break you, not destroy you. Based on your capacity, the mental or physical challenge is chosen for you. So, it is up to you to be satisfied and either deal with karmic accounting, or push the boundaries to experience all the hidden inner strengths within. — Satish Daryanani
