From The Aquarian Conspiracy

"In his 1918 diary, Hermann Hesse recalled a dream in which he heard two distinct voices. The first told him to overcome suffering, to calm himself. It sounded like parents, school, Kant, the church fathers. But the second voice-which sounded farther off, like 'primal cause'-said that suffering only hurts because you fear it, complain about it, flee it.
You know quite well, deep within you, that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation...and that is called loving. Well, then, love your suffering. Do not resist it, do not flee from it. Give yourself to it. It is only your aversion that hurts, nothing else."
