“Your True Purpose is woven into your deepest wound”
Pain is not only a physical but mental and emotional as well. Just think of the feelings involved after a recent breakup, a negative remark from a loved one, or a demotion at work. Emotional pain is something we also avoid at all costs, and can be just as hazardous to our health. It is the reason addiction is so powerful and has such a draw—substances numb pain. They also numb other emotions, including happiness, shock, love, lust, and a host of others. But they do numb pain. And thus we are drawn to that experience for a PURPOSE!!
Ultimately, pain is a part of life. Pain is something that informs us we are alive, and ought to stay that way. Pain inclines us to alter our behavior. Pain, in a way, is an aspect of the initial process of healing. It is a lesson from our bodies not to repeat that behavior.
However, that state is not permanent, either physically or emotionally. And so we must learn to live with a certain amount of pain in life. Perhaps, rather than attempting to avoid pain at all costs, we should try to learn from it, learn that some pain is a part of a process in healing and improving and a vehicle to assist us in reaching our PURPOSE.
Some pain indicates that we should not repeat past mistakes. Some pain may be inexplicable, but at least it reminds us of how our bodies and ourselves endure and stay alive.
