Suffering is the sandpaper of our life. It does its work of shaping us. Suffering is part of our training program for becoming wise. –Ram Dass
One of my favorite movie of all times is Fierce Grace which documents Ram Dass’s recovery from a stroke that nearly killed him. It’s a beautiful awe-inspriing film. I highly recommend it. If you have netflix you can watch it “instantly” on your computer. Otherwise it’s available through the mail.
