The Pearls of Pain

All pain, no matter where it comes from, contains within it a pearl of great value. The greater the pain, the more precious the pearl.

However, we must believe the pearl is indeed in our pain, and we must look for it. Otherwise, we'll never gain its benefit, and our suffering will become a gift we never unwrap.
