Cosmic Intelligence has placed certain entities in human beings to watch over them, and when these entities see that through carelessness or ill-will, people are destroying something in their own heart, mind or physical body, they begin to sting and bite them, as a way of saying, ‘Hey there, get back on track!’ These calls to order are what people call suffering. Since suffering gives us warning, we should consider it to be a friend; it is there to show us that we have strayed from the good conditions where everything was clear and easy.

It is up to us to understand its language and say to it, ‘May God bless you, I have understood, I am going to mend my ways.’ Once we have understood, and decide to reform, suffering has orders to leave us, for its work is done, its mission is accomplished.
