How to Love Our Tests (Essense of the Bhagavad Gita, Class 47, Verse 4:22)

"It is not enough to accept our tests, we have to love them," so said Swami Kriyananda. But how can we love our tests when they often bring suffering and challenges? Divine Mother, who loves us eternally and perfectly has been tasked with helping us to grow, and tests, trials, and challenges, are always tailor made to teach us exactly what we need to learn. Rather than trying to avoid our karma, we ought to learn to face into it with calm courage, praying deeply, "Whatever you're trying to teach me through this lesson, give me the receptivity to learn it."
