Becoming a Victor Through and From Suffering

From Day 7 of the online programme – Calming the Storm:

“Helen Keller once said:

‘all the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it.’

Helen overcame the enormous adversities of deafness, blindness, and muteness. She courageously fought to communicate with the outside world and in the process; she created a life of accomplishment and fulfillment. Helen became a well-known celebrity and lecturer, who shared her experiences with audiences and worked to help others living with disabilities. In choosing to help others even while suffering yourself, you find your meaning and you direct your mind away from your own suffering. You overcome your own suffering by helping others through their suffering.

Helen Keller’s life teaches us that the process of finding meaning in suffering is not in feeling like a victim of one’s fate. Instead, it comes from overcoming your suffering by reaching out and helping others. Rather than being a victim, you become a victor.”
