“It takes energy to look into suffering and to see what has brought about that suffering.  But this insight will lead us to see how to end our suffering, and the path needed to do so.  When we embrace our suffering, we see its origins, and we that it can end because there is a path.  Our suffering is at the center.  When we look at compost, we see the flowers.  When we look into the sea of fire, we see a lotus.  The path that does not run away from but embraces our suffering is the path that will lead us to liberation.” Thich Nhat Hanh
