Please don’t run away from your suffering

Picture Quotes on Transforming Suffering into Peace

Please don’t run away from your suffering. Embrace it and cherish it. Go to the Buddha, (the Buddha within us all) sit with him, and show him your pain. He will look at you with loving kindness, compassion, and mindfulness, and show you ways to embrace your suffering and look deeply into it. With understanding and compassion, you will be able to heal the wounds in your heart, and the wounds in the world. The Buddha called suffering a Holy Truth, because our suffering has the capacity of showing us the path to liberation. Embrace your suffering, and let it reveal to you the way to peace.
