The Pain ‘ting’!

As we sat in silence, she murmured “Why, at times, life gives so much pain…?


I have always believed that the basic purpose of pain is to ‘bring one’s attention towards what needs to be changed. Yes! It is not a punishment …it is a signal. It arises to help us find what is amiss or missing, and not to make us suffer by getting lost in it.

So the greatest disservice to it is to treat it symptomatically, without delving into it. As it is not for nothing that sometimes it is intense…sometimes persisting…sometimes recurring. It has types; and each type has its own texture that has to be understood in finer details.

From these details emerges the pain’s purpose.


Pain speaks. Listen to what it is saying and then…do something about it.
