Great change is only accomplished through great suffering. To experience enlightenment, one must suffer through the darkness of one’s being to reach the light of one’s spirit. To experience peace, one must experience its opposite, war. To experience the light of the day’s sun, one must also experience the darkness of the night. Without contrast there is no change, no difference, no experience of something else. And though suffering is hard and requires discipline, the end result will bring furthering of the human spirit, and love, already inspiring many, will prevail. For just as with everything else, love’s opposite must be experienced before love itself may reign.
Sending you love,
The Soul Sisters, Jan & Jeanne
