This isn't self harm pain, this is all the pain you derive from apparent lack in your life. This pain which your self (ego) will do almost anything to avoid is actually a very good way to access your true state of manifestation and to see pain for what it is, a reactive ego bent on growth.
Existance is suffering, not because being alive hurts, but always trying to seek pleasure and avoiding pain means you are constantly out of balance with what is. The moment is perfect, there is no pleasure or pain there, it's the totality of the universe expressing itself.
When there is pain in your life, it's an opportunity for you to access the moment and bring it's power to the situation. Resisting pain is futile and expands ego and it aids in it's growth. Most people want manifestation to end pain (lack) but it's always a challenge, because we're not accepting pain, we're trying to avoid it with fear, anger and saddness, then we want thought, emotion and ego to fix the pain while all those things are actually aiding in it's growth.
Acceptance of what is right now, is true power. When you say yes to what is (pain) you bring an attention to it that allows the universe to operate. When you react to pain, you cut yourself off from your true power and expand your ego. Next thing you know that is how you define yourself, by the very pain you are trying to get away from.
we seldom see eye to eye, most of the time, but i agree with your post this time. :3 relative to pain alone
pain is the mother of wisdom.
