Inner grouth

The rough challenging patches are ripe for inner growth. When there is smooth sailing, we coast, and usually do not grow. That’s why Bodhisattvas are likened to peacocks. Peacocks eat poison, but are not harmed. They just grow and thrive. Bodhisattvas look for challenging situations to grow their capacity to serve and benefit others. When we are challenged, we can grow. Challenging times are not easy, but with this attitude of inner growth of our capacity to help others, challenging times become a little easier!
