Beauty is where you find it.
If a man considers that he is born, he cannot avoid the fear of death. Let him find out if he has been born or if the Self has any birth. ...Find from where thoughts emerge. Then you will be able to abide in the ever-present inmost Self and be free from the idea of birth or the fear of death.
- Ramana Maharshi
All sacrifice and suffering is redemptive. It is used to either teach the individual or to help others. Nothing is by chance.
