Taking Suffering as My Teacher

When I feel that it is too hard to listen, that I want to close up and guard my heart may I open myself completely.

When I feel damaged, bruised and at death’s door may I throw my arms wide open to accept all slings and arrows.

When I am tired and sickly may I strive on harder and make the most of what’s left of this life.
