Whenever we experience pain or pleasure, misfortune or satisfactions, are the result of our past actions. If you are healthy, well-known or wealthy, it is the consequences of your good deeds in the past; if you are suffering from illness, obstacles or many kind of difficulties, it is the consequences of your past evil actions.
No matter what kind of situation you have been facing, you can purify it by your mind. When you are suffering, you can pray from the bottom of heart, that your pain and suffering can replace others suffering, in order to let them free from pain and suffering forever. The more you suffer, the better you can practice of bearing the pain for all sentient beings.
