The path of true religion and practical spirituality is the path of transcendence. Transcendence is not possible if you try to avoid pain and suffering. Condemn negativity, and it increases. Instead, accept it as complementary to positive forces, and meditate upon the purpose of a negative happening. Then you are not avoiding it, but awakening to Higher possibilities. Transformation and transcendence come only through acceptance and continual practice to rise beyond the negative and positive forces to the kingdom of Light and Love, and compassion and harmony; a true BALANCE that is Life.
