With any negative experience, comes the gift of learning and truth.
The story of Pandora, the first human woman given to man by the Greek gods, talks of a box that, when opened by a curious Pandora, releases all the evils and miseries into the world.
Yet, the name 'Pandora' means "gift", "gifted" or "all-giving."
Reinterpretations and alternative readings of the Pandora myth suggest the box contained blessings as well as evils - and that by opening the box, Pandora sparked a rebirth and a new age of man. This was Pandora's gift.
