Allow It to Endure

The lion’s share of my life has been dedicated to outrunning, avoiding or, at the very least, trying to explain away pain. Suffice it to say that I have yet to be successful.

I stumbled across this quote yesterday and it has been reverberating in my mind ever since. It’s no surprise, really, giving that the Lord Buddha started that patience is the highest ascetic practice but, like most things, it bears constant repeating.
