Do you experience pain in your body?
e.g. Backache, toothache, headache and others…
How do you relieve your pain?
Are you straight away take painkiller to stop the pain?
One of my teacher, she shared with us that she had back pain and she went for acupuncture. When the first needle inserted in her point, she felt tremendous pain.
However, once she saw the second needle was about to insert to her body, she can immediately felt the pain, the truth is the needle yet to touch her point.
Why this happen?
Our mind trick us, the pain is based on our emotional and also past experiences.
Think about it,
Some of us, when you look at chili, immediately you feel “spicy” in your mouth even without taste it…
When you look at green mango, immediately you feel “Sour” in your mouth even without taste it…
Have you ever think why this happen?
It has been driven by our mind. Our mind is so powerful, all creation is from our mind.
Actual pain is only 5% and 95% is from our emotional and past experience.
Imagine, when you have a minor cut on hand, initially it’s not so painful. However, once people said your wound is so deep and so painful. Immediately, you feel the tremendous and unbearable pain on your hand.
Don’t add in your emotional when you are facing pain.
What you need to do? Never reject it, once you reject you feel more pain in your body.
Accept, live harmony and peace with the pain, look at the pain with loving-kindness, gradually you feel nothing.
Take a try instead of depend on painkiller.
