There is a saying that whatever happens , happens for the best . i think , this may not be as true , but it is up to us in making whatever happens , happen for the best . There is always some learning that we can do , in both the pleasant and unpleasant predicament that all of us keep finding ourselves in , from time to time .
i know the feeling can be overwhelming when the odds are well stacked against us , and more importantly our minds is also down in the dumps , at the same time . Introspection really helps , and i have found the best recourse is to urgently address our weaknesses , and then work steadily in eradicating them . It pays off , and whatever seems to be thrown at us, good or bad , all comes to good use.
Just don't give up . Everyone hurts , and we create our own hurts .........
The Path of Dhamma
The path of Dhamma is no picnic . It is a strenuous march steeply up the hill . If all the comrades desert you , Walk alone ! Walk alone ! with all the Thrill !!
