A Seed of Growth and Liberation

"Think of some of the painful events in your life. For how many of them are you grateful today, because thanks to them you changed and grew? Here is a simple truth of life that most people never discover. Happy events make life delightful but they do not lead to self-discovery and growth and freedom. That privilege is reserved to the things and persons and situations that cause us pain.

Every painful event contains in itself a seed of growth and liberation."

- Anothony De Mello. The Way to Love: The Last Meditations of... Image Books, 1995. pg 157
