...
Birth is just like death, but the suffering is worth taking.
Out of the darkness of suffering a new morning arises, a new sun arises.
And the dawn is not very far when you feel darkness too much.
When suffering is unbearable, bliss is very near.
So don't try to escape from suffering -- that is the point where you can miss.
Don't try to avoid it, pass through it.
Don't try to find some way which goes round about- no, that won't do- pass through it.
Suffering will burn you, destroy you, but really you cannot be destroyed.
All that can be destroyed is just the rubbish that you have gathered.
All that can be destroyed is something that is not you.
When it is all destroyed, then you will feel that you are indestructible, you are deathless.
Passing through death, consciously passing through death, one becomes aware of life eternal.
