So, you say, 'I have suffered.' I am not
going to fight with you about it. But also
there are people who experience a deep
sense of gratitude or even joy behind
their apparent suffering. I won't call this
suffering really, because there is no
resistance here. They have understood
and accepted that grace sometimes
manifests as an intense inner burning
that purges the being of conceptual
and emotional toxins, and to that
extent they remain in peace.
