Transcendence - is your pain is the path to freedom?

Some will just set up house & live in their pain while another will finally get to the point that the pain is intolerable & begin to seek a solution. Many times we will begin a new path spurred forward by pain, but there does come a time that we can continue to grow no longer driven by pain but inspired by a new vision.

Perhaps our Spiritual growth pains only exist when we choose not to listen to our inner guidance and directive?
