Out Of Pain, Comes Poetry …

God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains; it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world. — C.S. Lewis

This 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 heart 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 woman leaves you alone–those
dark nights, you are lonely. You have loved that woman so much
and you have staked all, and then suddenly one day she 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.   — Osho

Out of pain, comes poetry. — Ashley Highland

Why love, if losing hurts so much? I have no answers anymore: only the life I have lived. Twice in that life I’ve been given the choice: as a boy and as a man. The boy chose safety, the man chooses suffering. The pain now is part of the happiness then. That’s the deal.  —  C.S. Lewis
