Every story needs a voice to share it.
There are only two.
All stories are spoken by either the voice of pain or the voice of peace.
Those who speak stories of pain use the voice of pain.
They can only teach of pain.
Those who speak stories of peace use the voice of peace.
They can only teach peace, which confuses those who know only of pain.
Those who speak stories of pain with the voice of peace teach both.
But more importantly, they also teach the distinction between the two.
Those who know only the voice of pain will often know no other
Those who know the voice of peace will pursue it.
It is used only to explain the limitations of pain.
We speak of what we know.
