895 – Understand and appreciate the power of Sorrow

Pain is very necessary.
School yourself in sorrow.
Develop yourself in agony.
Be on the anvil all the time
And let the iron blows
Forge your personality. – Swami Satyananda Saraswati

There is peace and rest
And comfort in sorrow. – Soren Kierkegaard

The Lord is near to those who are
discouraged; he saves
those who have lost all hope. – Psalm 34:18.

When you think you are too good, you blame the world; then you become sad. The purpose of sorrow is to bring you back to the self. And the self is all joy. This is possible only through knowledge and awareness. Knowledge and awareness lead sorrow towards self. With lack of knowledge, the same sorrow multiplies and does not get completed. Knowledge completes sorrow. What is knowledge, it is wisdom, laughter, seva, silence, singing, dancing, caring, problems and chaos. – Sri Sri Ravishankar

Knowledge is acquired through awareness and consciousness.
