Pain is undeniable but suffering is a choice. Living in the material universe demands a certain acquiescence to the limits of form. Pain is not evil or wrong – helpful in fact – only intense in its delivery. Suffering is the result of deciding to ignore or disregard what pain seeks to see made right. I argue that in pain is found truth, and once you subdue your innate aversion to its presence you can gain for yourself its treasure as your own. Pain should be embraced and then allowed to go its way, not to be held too tightly. Pain can only be fully released after its measure is truly taken and its message fully read. Accept your pain, but let go your suffering.
