Being Unafraid of Pain

This was in my inbox today. This is they kind of stuff I have been learning in counseling.

You don’t have to be afraid of pain. If it’s going to be there, you can let it be there—but don’t let the mind be in pain with it.

– Upasika Kee Nanayon, “Tough Teachings to Ease the Mind”



About ~Drew

I am a survivor of childhood torture. Each day, I put one foot in front of the other, moving forward. To do any less would spell my own destruction. My music/poetry/prose deal with the devastating effect of this kind of abuse on a human being: me. My experiences/thoughts/ideas/misconceptions are exposed here for all to see. Here. I am lain bare, naked, hidden only be the cloak of anonymity.

One Response to Being Unafraid of Pain

  1. Marty says:

    I have chronic pain and have made a different relationship with my pain. First pain is a warning signal. My chronic pain can not hurt me. Pain until it reaches that high level of intensity can be compressed with action.

    Never give pain any energy or attention. Stress anxiety fear or other things exacerbate pain.

    Let the thoughts and worries of pain go next time and be with the pain. Know it feel it, it is your own body mechanism. Not a stranger.

    Good look
