Pain is God’s hand in disguise…

As we age, the measure of happiness also changes. When we were young, the measure of happiness is on how much money we can earn.

But once we get older, the measure of happiness is on how much happiness we can give to others. And the second type of happiness is actually stronger and more beautiful.

It beautifies life in the present and also saves life in the future. To be grateful, the Compassion spiritual family has spread Light all over the world.

One of the examples is the book Golden Heart II written by a number of world spiritual masters. One of them is Guruji. This book became a best seller in the world-class bookstore Amazon.

Had inspired many youth around the world. In this book, Guruji shares a short but deep message to all orphans.

“You are not being punished by God through your dead parents. You are being blessed by God to learn to find your inner parents within.”

Once a person finds wise parents within, there he will be grateful for the experience of the grief of being abandoned by a parent.

It was painful at first, but in the end it was very maturing. It is like a flower blooming because it is heated by sunlight. It’s like bamboo that turns into a flute because it’s scraped by a sharp knife.

For a deeper understanding, in our time, all bearers of Light are made radiant by deep pain and suffering. Nelson Mandela was even jailed for 27 years.

Mahatma Gandhi abandoned his luxurious life as a lawyer in South Africa because he was violently thrown from a train carriage.

HH the Dalai Lama lost almost everything (his country, palace, etc.) at the age of 15. And until now it has been 72 years of suffering.

The lesson then, whenever we are visited by pain like abandoned parents, try less to blame the outside. Find the gem of maturity inside.

Once the gem is found inside, there you will understand through real experience, pain is actually a God’s hand in disguise.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
