Buddhist teaching

Posted by chumbawumba on April 14, 2011, at 23:21:28

In Buddhism there is a recurring theme that difficulties point us to the truth. Put in other terms, the chains that bind us are themselves the vehicle by which we become free. Difficulty is a gift because if one can make friends with it, it becomes a teacher rather than an enemy.

In my case severe depression led me to have much more compassion for myself and others. My heart was opened.

I realize the discussion here is mostly Christian focused, but I was wondering if something similar exists in Christianity?
