I have been thinking a lot about pain lately. Some people and if we are all honest we have all dealt with some kind of pain that we tolerate whether it is a job that we are not quite content with or a relationship that we wish we could hold on to or there is Something that causes us tsuris. We all stay in these unhealthy situations because we are actually getting something out of them…… they keep us safe. They don’t challenge us to move forward. Maybe we don’t have to work on that which is causing us difficulty at our job or the relationship that we are in keeps us from being alone. All of this is completely understandable yet…. we are still in pain. Now imagine a whole beautiful life, pain free!! Only you can answer the question of what you are getting out of this situation that keeps you “safe”? Because I wonder how safe are you really? How is it serving you? And how much lighter will you feel without it? Once you have answered these questions, understood them and are you able to move towards a healthier you, you are then moving toward the pain free life.
Also in terms of a job or even a relationship when we ask these questions we might find when we stand back we’ll see that our mortgage is getting paid and the kids are getting fed. While we see what we are getting out of a situation we also can see what is good around us and hence the pain seems least ubiquitous. Hence we move by choice and away from the discomfort of the pain so we are able to make conscious choices.
Sending you Love and Light on your journey towards self discovery
Damn, that sound’s so easy if you think about it.
