“Suffering – Abstract CG” by gr8effect

“Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible be found in us. We call it leaning into the sharp parts. Something hurts, lean in. You just lean into that point until it loses its power over you. There’s a certain amount of suffering that you have to be willing to sustain if you want to have a good life. And the trick is to be able to sustain it with your heart open and still be loving. This is the real trick.”
