The Bridge of Sorrow
Sorrow, my children , is the teacher
That brings you closer to God.
It is God who creates the sorrows
and obstacles in a seeker’s life.
God employs selfish people as instruments
to make the seeker suffer.
A truly spiritual person views suffering
As a blessing ------ a bridge to God.
Without suffering Spiritual realization is impossible
Those who suffer cry more intensely to God,
Creating a bridge for God to cross over .
Crying out to God is certainly no misfortune-----
It makes the heart blossom.
( From Messages from Amma in the language of the heart.)
