Purpose Of Suffering # Lady Gaga


“If … you’re suffering in any type of way, just know that suffering within itself is a sign of your humanity and you are NOT broken. You are connected to the whole world and we are one giant body… And the whole you is having a whole human experience and there might be parts of your life that feel completely shallow or robotic or ancillary and unimportant, and that’s OK, but suffering is a sign that you’re real and it’s a way to ground yourself.”

– a recent quote from Lady Gaga, singer/entertainer.

Once again, a pop star’s quote (Lady Gaga) has caught my attention not because of its raunchiness or vulgarity but for its wisdom. Often we don’t get nuggets of wisdom from entertainers. Lady Gaga’s aforementioned words are similar explanations I give to my clients of my healing profession. Apart from channeling energy to balance my clients’ body through reiki (i.e. divine life force), I also provide counselling by sharing all the things I have learned from my own challenges and the spiritual messages I had gathered from other sources, over the past decades.

Often I explain to my clients that life on Earth is usually not like a walk in the park, although it can be. Challenges in all forms can take place and suffering is part of the human experience. As a human, we get to feel a vast array of emotions and that itself is enriching, as we learn what it is like to be human. The ups and downs of life help create so many lessons that a fairytale life (where everything is perfect) cannot. Many parties have surmised before that we live in a perfectly imperfect world and I concur. And out of that comes growth from overcoming the human suffering. Hence, I believe we ought to treasure life , as Life Is Facilitating Experience… the human experience.
