So I need your guys help. I am on a mission to create positive memories to keep me going and to give me a reason to keep moving forward.
A) You do not 'create' thought/memories, you 'perceive' thought/memories.
B) 'Memories' can rather easily be implanted, almost like in 'Total Recall', by any good hypnotherapist!
you can even do it to yourself!
There will be lots more suffering in your life when you attempt to run from, or attach to passing thoughts!
Personal comfort is a rather juvenile goal in life.
There can be no Blessings without Pain!
Pain is necessary to turn you from a mere hominid into a 'human'!
“Suffering is a gift. In it is hidden mercy.”
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
"I say that next to God there is no nobler thing than suffering. Right suffering is the mother of all virtues, for right suffering so subdues the
heart, it cannot rise to pride but perforce is lowly." - Meister Eckhart
"Harkee, all rational souls! The swiftest steed to bear you to your goal is suffering; none shall ever taste eternal bliss but those who stand with
Christ in depths of bitterness. Nothing is more gall-bitter than suffering, nothing so honey-sweet as to have suffered. The most sure foundation for
this perfection is humility, for he whose nature here creeps in deepest depths shall soar in spirit to highest height of Deity.' - Meister Eckhart
"The growth of the soul in man is as that of a pearl in an oyster, both being caused by irritation." - Plato
Pain and Blessing/Bliss are One Reality!
The only difference is a matter of Perspective!
"The immature run from Pain, the Wise find the Blessing within!" - n
"Only a Breaking Heart can Love!" - n
Pay your dues, son, like us all!
You cannot have a Heaven without a Hell! *__-
