The pain is not to make you sad, remember. That's where people go on missing..... This pain is just to make you more alert- because people become alert only when the arrow goes deep into their hearts and wounds them. Otherwise they don't become alert. When life is easy, comfortable, convenient, who cares? Who bothers to become alert? When a friend dies, there is a possibility. When your man leaves you alone, those dark nights, you are lonely. You have loved that man so much and you have staked all, and then suddenly one day he is gone. Crying in your loneliness, those are the occasions when, if you use them, you can become aware. The arrow is hurting: it can be used. The pain is not to make you miserable, The pain is to make you more aware! And when you are aware, misery disappears.
Take It Easy.
Volume 2. Chapter 12.
