From the book, “No Mud, No Lotus: The Art of Transforming Suffering”
“Both suffering and happiness are of an organic nature, which means they are both transitory; they are always changing. The flower, when it wilts, becomes the compost. The compost can help grow a flower again. Happiness is also organic and impermanent by nature. It can become suffering and suffering can become happiness again.”
“The art of happiness is the art of suffering well.”
