The Road Less Traveled

Here is a quote from a book I read a long time ago called The Road Less Traveled.

"One measure of a person's greatness is the capacity for suffering. So, if your goal is to avoid pain and escape suffering, I would not advise you to seek higher levels of consciousness or spiritual evolution. First, you cannot acheive them without suffering, and second, insofar as you do achieve them, you are likely to be called on to serve in ways more painful to you, or at least demanding of you, than you can now imagine."
