There’s nothing wrong with pain, this too has been taught to us that pain is something wrong, or undesirable, or evil. You can live, joyfully in pain. And if you do not know that, then you will remain a pleasure hunter and that will be great suffering.

So when pain comes live in pain just as you live in pleasure, looking at pain, letting pain pass through you, sometimes even possess you.

This is also a cultural thing, a thing of conditioning that the pain has to be resisted.

Can’t you be in pain and still have depth, can’t you be in pain and still have a subtle joy, a subtle smile? It’s possible, you know that, right? And that’s such a beautiful thing. So learn to live in pain. There is nothing bad at all about pain.

And one has all the freedom to cry freely, just has one has all the freedom to laugh out loud.
