The First Noble Truth of Buddhism states that pain and dissatisfaction are part of being human. Yet, even though life is far from perfect, the Truth states that we hold the key to our liberation based on how we process our pain. 

While self-reflection is an essential part of turning pain into purpose, it isn’t enough on its own. The key to fully releasing the pain is to find ways to use your experiences to transform the lives of others.

This process is demonstrated in the stories of those who found meaning in their struggles, featured in this week’s episode. You’ll also learn four steps that will help you find purpose no matter what type of challenges you face.
