Before a great dream can become reality there may be difficulty.  Before a person begins a great endeavour, they may encounter chaos.  As a new plant breaks the ground with great difficulty, foreshadowing the huge tree, so must we sometimes push against difficulty in bringing forth our dreams.

– The I Ching

As a [person’s] real power grows and knowledge widens, ever the way he can follow grows narrower; until at last he chooses nothing, but does only and wholly what he must do.

– Ursula LeGuin, Earthsea Trilogy

To find in ourselves what makes life worth living is risky business, for it means that once we know we must seek it.  It also means that without it life will be valueless.

– Marsha Sinctar, Ordinary People as Monks and Mystics

If, like Job, we plumb the depths of our dark nights and catch a true glimpse of the divine, perhaps we will indeed be comforted that we are dust.  The drama of this body we hold so dear may then appear to be but one act in a cosmic play of epic proportions.  Transformed by the eternal radiance in whose stories we grow and ripen, perhaps we might then accept our suffering, as the seeds of awakening.
