Most people dislike pain and look at it as an undesirable aspect of an illness. When they realize that they are unable to get rid of the disease, they try their best to get rid of the pain. While this is quite natural, one must not look at pain in that way.
In this post, would like to draw your attention to a very important aspect of healing and sensitize you that pain is actually not a problem, rather is the solution to the problem.
A very interesting but less known fact about Awareness, is that Awareness or consciousness helps in healing things and bringing the body in a state of harmony or balance. Whenever any part of the body is unwell, injured or tired, it obviously needs healing. The body knows that this healing can be quickly achieved by two ways
1. By feeding it with Awareness (Because awareness helps in healing)
2. By ensuring that the body part gets rest to prevent it from further wear and tear.
The body achieves both of the above simply by creating a feeling of Pain. The more the awareness is required, or rest is required, greater will be the pain. Therefore, the body’s immediate response is to create pain which then quickly attracts our awareness or attention.
So, say for example, your knee is not well, then to heal itself quickly, it needs your awareness and to get that its only way of communicating this to you is by creating a feeling of pain or discomfort in that area, so that you immediately put your attention or awareness there .
At this time, if you give it your full awareness, your knee can actually heal itself instantly in minutes. (I say this with confidence after having done hundreds of such instant healing) . However what we do these days is that instead of listening to the knee and simply giving it our pure awareness, we ask it to shut up by taking a pain killer.
That’s where everything starts going wrong. A result of taking the pain killer is that we no longer are conscious or aware of the knee and also no longer feel the need to give it rest, and so we continue with our stressful use of the knee thereby damaging it further.
Don’t you think this is the start point of all trouble. I always tell people that look at pain not as a problem but as a solution. If we simply give our pure awareness to the part that’s paining, in a short while the body or unwell part will do the needful that’s required and will get fine. Once the root cause is gone, pain (which is the symptom) will disappear automatically.
Think about this and next time you have pain, you know exactly what to do and what to avoid.
In my next post, I intend to write about how to create a deep state of awareness by listening to the body at a Zero point mindless state.
