Pearls of Wisdom
The moment we are born we are given two gifts, the great gift of life, which in itself is an intriguing, mystical, puzzle, it is a fun mystery to try to solve, but we are also given the gift of death, inevitability, and the end will come to us all, it is a guarantee, a man once said, "no one gets out alive", indeed, how true was that statement. When we are given a gift such as life, it will always contain two polar opposites, there will be joy and there will be pain, there is no escaping that formula, anything we are given always has a light and dark element, there can be no black with out white, no tall without short, no night without day and no joy without pain.
A panacea is the idea that there is a cure-all, a magic bullet, a solution to all life's suffering, the only solution you will ever find to reduce your suffering is to accept it as a gift that has been bestowed upon you the moment you were born, both joy and pain are yours and they are a little easier when you accept both as they are
