Embrace Your Scars

This is a great message by one of my favorite bloggers.

Zen Revolution

Khalil Gibran

As human beings we avoid suffering and pain. It is natural that we are drawn to comfort and security. However, pain is inevitable. Buddha stated this directly when he is said life is suffering. However, Buddha also stated that suffering, and life is impermanent. All of life, all beings are in a state of change. We are always in a transition. When we cling to the past, or what life should be we become attached to the illusion of permanence. Life is not permanent. It is constantly changing. It is filled with happiness, with loss, with broken hearts, with love, with joy, and with tears. We are an embodiment of all of these experiences, a walking billboard of scars and beauty marks highlighting a life that has been lived, journey’s that have been taken.
