A Quote by Shyamananda on maya, self-realization, bliss, authenticity, happiness, enlightenment, pain, and distress

Your unrest is the last cramp in your legs as you climb this mountain. Rest awhile, if you like.

But do not return to your old house. It is not your home any longer.

A Quote by Dalai Lama on happiness, joy, suffering, pain, ehthics, moral, buddhism, and dali lama

It is in everybody's interest to seek those [actions] that lead to happiness and avoid those which lead to suffering. And because our interests are inextricably linked, we are compelled to accept ethics as the indispensable interface between my desire to be happy and yours.

A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on pain, love, and perception

Most men and women lead lives at the worst so painful, at best so monotonous, poor and limited that the urge to escape, the longing to transcend themselves if only for a few moments, is and has always been one of the principal appetites of the soul

Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963)

A Quote by Marlo Morgan on imperfection, lessons, choice, suffering, and pain

"There should be no suffering for any creature except for what they accept for themselves."  That was a thought to ponder.  Spirit Woman explained that each individual soul on the highest level of our being could, and sometimes did, select to be born into an imperfect body; they often came to teach and influence the lives they touched.  Spirit Woman said that members of the tribe that had been murdered in the past had selected prior to birth to live their life to the fullest but, at some point in time, to be a part of some other soul's enlightenment test.  If they were killed, it was with their agreement on an external level and only indicated how truly they understood forever.  It meant the muderer had failed the challenge and would be tested again someplace in the future.  All diseases and disorders, they believe, have some spiritual connection and serve as stepping-stones if Mutants would only open up and listen to their bodies to learn what is taking place.
