What is Pain?

Postby ashley72 » Mon May 14, 2012 11:06 pm

Usually we get pain INSIDE, but we reach OUTSIDE to heal it with food, drugs, men, sex, alcohol etc.
However, looking OUTSIDE can’t heal.....because you are addicted to "your" story. Who would you be without that story? You know how to be an addict, you know how to hustle, you know how to be that person. Your greatness is what scares you. You’re telling the story over and over until you’re hypnotized.

The way to break free from the imaginary "I" revolving story is to turn your attention inwards NOW.

PAIN = PAY ATTENTION INWARD NOW :D

Thats to me the underlying point of spiritual growth (for want of a better term). To stop looking for something outside of you to create/fix something that is internal.
There is nothing harder to find than a black cat in a dark room
Especially when there is no cat....

That's a nice simply way of saying it. :D
