For our journey

We must embrace pain and burn it
as fuel for our journey. ~Kenji Miyazawa
"Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being."

    Excellent. Some pains are highly inflammable and can be used as a fuel of life engine. Way of truthfulness may hard but always believe and trust the way you have chosen. Happy December +Jendhamuni Sos.
