analysis of the ways in which we (in both the generic and
more personal sense) can find love:
2nd Corinthians, 8:2
How that in a great trial of affliction the abundances of their joy and their deep poverty abounded into the riches of their liberality.
Please note that the last word in the passage can be translated as the sincerity of thought, the puresness of their hearts or as a munificence of sorts.
From the Memoirs of Rogatien Remillard
....the notion, held by a fair number of thinkers, that pain was an educative pool and the ordeal a potential pathway to the higher levels of consciousness.
Remillard's thoughts can be found in Julian May's literary works.
|Thank you to
The Second Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians for showing the
'richness' and happiness that is attainable from the sharing of our trials,
and for his letters to the Galatians (5:22-23) for the somewhat easier to
deduce 'fruit of the Spirit' that is shared with us in adversity.
By the way: I was being extremely sarcastic in my introductory note of this being any form of 'edutainment'.
