Do you believe that suffering and pain is necessary for learning lessons and advancing spiritually?

Greetings, I do not think that suffering or pain are absolutely the only way to evolve spiritually. Advancement can be simply a gift of God. However, opposite sides of the coin are necessary to having a coin. So, the existence of polarities is basic to creation. Light vs dark, small vs big, high versus low.

Usually, one must experience a great depth before experiencing the height. You can name your experience as painful or delightful. However, in our way....all life's challenges are gifts from God. It just takes a very elevated perspective of human consiousness to appreciate this teaching of the Guru. Truely God conscious people are few and far between on any religious path.

God bless you, SKKK
