Our Greatest Gains From The Most Painful Troubles

Our greatest gains from the most painful of experiences is truly the rhythmic order of the cosmos.  No pain no gain.  Without troubles, tragedy, heartache there is no triumph.  It is through the toughest times we walk the path of pain and resilience is bequeathed upon us by a Supreme Being.  Without the long hard hike and the mountainous terrain tearing into the soles of our feet what do we know of pleasure and without breaking a real sweat what do we know of pain.  Without the hard aches we have no way of differentiating the beautiful softness that perhaps maybe just fleeting.  Even in the minute glimpses and glances of a fleeting love or moment we come to know the innate difference between pleasure and pain, love and heartache, the haves and wants. And the haves and have nots. Why is it we always want what we can’t have. And when we no longer want it we can have it.
