Negative experiences we encounter teach lasting lessons. Looking inward during times of difficulty is not something we tend to do naturally, we often look outside for blame, for answers and for healing. And yet, if we look inside and search for ways to grow off of the back of a difficult situation, we will find many opportunities and answers to solve the problems and difficulties.

Even when things aren’t going well, we can look at what’s going at that moment with mindfulness and then, it encourages us to find good in every situation and learn from all experiences. Suffering teaches us to be more compassionate, it takes us back to our true self, and we feel greater empathy toward other people as a result of our own pain. So, be mindful and cultivate compassionate thoughts to transform our and others’ suffering into happiness.

May all beings be happy and be free from suffering
