Rains — grace from the gods, renewing life. But pausing the life in old arthritic me.
My aching bones need drying, badly. Do I believe enough to say a prayer to the Sun-god for healing light and heat?
If rains are grace from the gods, what are pains?
“All disease is a means towards some new joy of health, all evil & pain a tuning of Nature for some more intense bliss & good, all death an opening on widest immortality. Why and how this should be so, is God’s secret which only the soul purified of egoism can penetrate.” (Sri Aurobindo, CWSA, 12: 438-439)
