"We learn through pain until we evolve to learn
Funny thing is,
that some people hold on to pain like an old friend,
and they cannot tell the difference
between the open hand that lifts up,
and the back hand that beats down.
I pray to not be that person.
And I pray that I would rather be poor
with a soul that is open to receive
and express all the highs and the lows of this life,
than the most successful
and renowned professional
that sold his soul and trampled
over the remains of others.
~The teachings of Buddha~
