Why we suffer? Be happy
Both suffering and happiness are of an organic nature, which means both are transitory. Both are always changing.
The flower when it wilts (dies) becomes the compost. The compost grows flowers again. Happiness is also organic and impermanent by nature. It can become suffering and suffering can become happiness again.
Everybody knows that the lotus grows in mud and it gives fragrance, which means for taking fragrance, we need mud, if we do not have mud, lotus will not manifest.
In the same way, suffering is mud and fragrance is happiness, you can not get happiness without suffering. The other way of saying this is that unless we experience suffering, we would not know the value of happiness. The purpose of our life is to get peace and happiness. Therefore please try to get happiness even from the smallest things around you.
Children are the best source of happiness, in old age, grandchildren are the tonic of good health.
May God bless with all comfort in life.
