When adversity befalls us, some rail against it in anger, some crumble under its weight in anguish, still others turn away in denial as if ignoring the pain will make it disappear.

Rare are those who accept it fully and attempt to deal with it. Rarer still are those with the courage to look into it very deeply, to see adversity for what it is, to see who it truly belongs to.

Do you own it? Is it your pain? Your misfortune? Your anguish? Or are you merely the observer? The One that watches joy and sorrow come and go. The eternal witness that observes the play of opposites as they appear and disappear upon the screen of life.

Or are you the sufferer who owns the pain, identifies with the pain and becomes the pain, the sufferer.

The choice, my friend, is yours.
