"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depts. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen"
These are the kind of 'beautiful' ideas we have come to accept within spirituality and metaphysics. What we are basically implying within these statements, is that all suffering is acceptable. We are saying that to be beautiful in this world is to accept that people must endure suffering and pain. Therefore suffering and pain is acceptable as it makes one beautiful. Of course the only reason why someone would want to sell you mumbo jumbo like this, is because they want to be able to continue abusing people and the planet, and they want your permission to do so. They even push to have your congratulations on being the one to harm another - to stroke their ego for being so clever at finding ways to profit from the suffering of others.
This is how far fetched our world has become that we will 'beautify' suffering by giving it some deeper meaning and we will use the beautification of suffering to make money. It must be so easy for the person who wrote this to be content with their mind fuck. I mean if you have a roof over your head, food to eat and all the privileges that an income can provides, then of course it is easy to sit back and write poetic mind garbage in which you are directly disregarding every animal, child and person who is and ever has been trapped in abusive life situations over which they had no control. You are in the Elitist position to observe their suffering and to say 'oh but this makes you beautiful'. Would you place yourselves in the shoes of those who are blown up in wars because politicians are fighting over power and resources, or raped because you were the subject of another's sick twisted mind or to be without food because the governments and capitalists play games with poverty so that they can control money? Would you still spew out such useless garbage if you were in the shoes of those who lost a child because of a drunker driver? If you have been in such situations and you spew out this mind garbage then I suggest get help, because you have deluded yourself through your coping mechanisms to bow down to the system and say 'I will do whatever you say, just don’t hurt me again'. You are not to be trusted with the safety of others such as taking care of a child or to drive a car, because you might just drive into someone just to see how beautifully they transcend their windscreen. To say someone becomes sensitive and develops an understanding - does not mean the person is living - it only means you have tuned yourself into your fear around what has happened and what could happen and now you developed an understanding of how to survive. It is the mind that makes you feel ok and justified why you should be happy in the face of abuse.
These are the only reasons we would beautify suffering as it exist in our world - we are either bored elitists with no regards for life or we are coping with our loss by making ourselves feel good about what happened to us.
