I love the pain of existence!

Pain is the sweet nectar of life

In life, you cannot get sweet without bitter. In-fact, I find very ‘bitter’ foods as sweet (single origin Ethiopian espresso, light roast) as incredibly sweet! Perhaps it is a matter of training your tongue — to ABSTAIN from overly-sweet foods (sugar, candy, fruits), and instead– learn to taste the sweetness inherent in bitter things.

A harder life is a better life.

Let us not get suckered. A harder and more bitter life is the best life. A life without pain, difficulty or tragedy is a boring, senseless, and meaningless life.
