I'm hoping others will answer this as they feel the urge to share
their understanding,but for now, I would like to suggest that
this is exactly the kind of question that is worth your
meditating about. This would be a classic Jnana Yoga, the Yoga of
Wisdom, meditation. So, since this came to your mind, I would suggest
continuing thinking about it. I will give you a few "clues", that may
possibly appear in your own mentations.....
Can you really help others if you are caught up in your own (selfish
by nature) desires, and is suffering "not a good thing", or is
it an opportunity to learn (and gain the 2 most important spiritual
aspects - humility and compassion)? I hope this helps.
