Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. ~ Dalai Lama ~
Unfortunately, pain is only one of many experiences that allows us to repeat our sufferings. Rather than interpreting it as a punishment, we can choose to see pain as just another bodily sensation. We certainly do not have to enjoy it, but we can strive to accept pain as a part of being human. We should understand that our pain is lessened when we cease to struggle against it.
If the pain we have is ongoing, accepting it is important. As we accept this pain, we will notice that the pain gets smaller and is pushed aside by everything in our life that is good and brings us joy. If we put the pain aside in our thinking, there will be so much room for everything else. We are not our pain. We will be blessed.
