“A voice said, look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth.” – Robert Frost
Pain is an inevitable reality. It is there. It cannot be avoided. People sometimes get lost in pain and find themselves totally trapped in despair. They often forget every coin has an opposite side. Pain and happiness are equally worthy. They are like the two sides of a coin. One cannot exist without the other. That nature is not without a reason.
If your God asks you whether your pain is too much to pay for your happiness, what will be your answer?
The question deserves a rational introspection. But, there is a problem. Are we aware about our happiness? Are we aware about the gifts we have got from the god? Unfortunately, most of us are simple unaware. Those, who invest hours counting their pain, often spend no time – not even, few seconds – to count its opposite.
This question made by Robert Frost may do wonders in you. It is an opportunity for a realisation. It is an opportunity to learn a lesson which can offer a new perspective to your view on pain.
God is not as cruel as what you think. He is in reality “the true source of kindness and love”
