" In a sense misery is your best friend, because it commences, you seeking God. When you begin to see clearly the imperfections of the world, you will begin to seek the Perfection of God.
The truth is that God is using evil, not to destroy us, but to make us disillusioned with His toys, with the playthings of this world, so that we might seek Him.
Trouble and sorrow have a lesson for us. Our painful experiences are not meant to break us, but to burn out our dross, to hurry us back Home.
No one is more anxious for our release than God."
- Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda (PBUH)
