Suffering is a perspective, a way of interpreting things not going our way. Flip the perspective and you have maturation, wisdom, knowing, seeing, understanding— enlightenment. Which doesn’t care what its chances are, and is here to do what needs to be done, when, where and how it needs to be done, no matter what, anyway, nevertheless, even so. Jesus in Gethsemane, saying okay to death, rising from the dead, laughing on his way to Galilee. Doing what is called for all the way to the next thing, and the thing after that… All the way. That is the way! We think it is about having our way, getting what we want. That is NOT the way! The way that is the Way is seeing what needs to be done and doing that when, where and how it needs to be done, and then doing the next thing after that, and so on. All the way. That is the Way!

Thank you for reminding me that misery is optional.
