Passage of the Day: The Sensation of Pain and Your Thoughts and Feelings

“If you are willing to turn toward the pain, accept it, observe it, and not run from it, it can teach you a great deal. Above all, you learn that you can work with it. You learn that pain is not a static experience: it is constantly changing. You come to see that that the sensations are just what they are and that your thoughts and feelings are something apart from the sensations. You come to see that your mind may play a large part in your suffering, and it can play a large role in freeing you from suffering as well. Pain can teach you all of these things.”
