Are our wounds created equal, It seems like some suffer more than others?

To defeat pain is to conquer the mind?

I think some charts show a much harder life than others.

I think you can take the same scenario and put that in different persons lives. You will get a variety of viewpoints on that same scenario.

What's painful to me may not be painful to you and vise versa. The whole making a mountain of a molehill idea. To one, it is a mountain.

It's to BE with yourself IN the pain, and be Still, and Breathe, and take care of your needs (food, warmth, comfort), sit WITH your Innerchild and 'allow' things to process.

You might write in a journal, draw, listen to some music (not the kind that urge you to destroy yourself), get out in nature and look at little creatures, the children, the Beauty of foliage and bark on the trees. Pick out small artistic details in your environment outside, or indoors enjoy how the lines of walls come together, the texture of the tile or carpet, the little dust lint... a little ant.

While you look at that, let your inner senses let go, be 'soft' inside, and let the throbs take their course. Focus down in your belly. Be in the quiet place inside it.

Self care, self care, self care....

Let go of stress,

let go of 'needing' to think (if you can).... Keep releasing the thoughts, and stay inward. Just "be" ... Move, sit, walk around, Be.

Some other people like to go the physical route of exercise, cleaning projects.... As you clean, clear your head.... 'wax on, wax off' (ref Karate Kid)

Some people like to take salt baths, sweats. Good hot showers... Then wear clothing that feels good to you.

Sometimes for me, I'll turn the television on without the sound, and just watch the scenery. The pretty colors, lines.

If you believe in God, spend time saying prayers, asking God to help. Read The Psalms (very comforting) in the Bible. (Read whatever inspirational literature that belongs to your own belief system.)

And Waiting. ..... Knowing that 'this too shall pass'. There's another day coming. This is only temporary and in a few days or weeks and months (hopefully-- depending on the transit?) it WILL have gone by. There WILL be some new sense that will come out of things....

Write a poem--- and come post it in the Yellow Wax Forum. There are some wise kind and gentle souls there who will 'hold space' with you and your words.

Just a few ideas..... Blessings!


Yota13--- I LOVED what you said!! "Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional."

(You must be an eastern religion? ... I think I Understand what you meant. There's that very small quiet still deep deep InnerOuter place.)

Omg, reminds me of this older song--- I remember hearing stories that she wrote this about a guru she had found. (re Krishna Csness?)

You showed me how to turn down the noise in my mind...
Now I haven't got time for the pain.

Suffering was the only thing made me feel I was alive;
Thought that's just how much it 'cost' to survive in this world--
Until you showed me 'how' to open up and drink in all that white light
Pouring down from the Heavens...

(music) Haven't Got Time For The Pain (Carly Simon, 1974) [3:54] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuMLBhrKHsA


This is another piece of music from a Christian-type background (which has been my own base-expression and filter).

This particular song is not overtly "religious", but if you are a person of Faith (and sensing subtle-energies), you can sense a warm Presence of Comfort within it.
Cloak yourself with the comfort of the palpable energetic robes of Faith.

Into ascended-masters?, you'll like this one.

This has a lightening bittersweet effect, for those in the throes and darker part of their pain still....

After you've done ALL you can,
you just Stand.

(music) Stand (Donnie McClurkin) [5:20] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuMLBhrKHsA

Peace! ....

Yes, it's all subjective.

And I'll add that from an astrological perspective, then one's natal chart can matter. An astro-twin of mine had an almost identical chart to me, but was born 3 days later, which put her sun on the Scorpio side than the Libra side. I figured that's why she was crippled more by our upbringing more than I was, which created a vicious circle for her. Though had she survived it as I did (and rose from the ashes as a phoenix) then she could potentially be an amazing healer of others now, unlike me. That is to say, she was crippled more than I was by it, but at the same time she had the potential to become much stronger for having endured it than I have.

"Everyone's burden is heavy".

I work with people in so much pain they wish to take their life. As yet, I have not identified a way to measure types or sources of pain. Everyone's suffering is theirs.

Everyone has battles to fight and wounds that they're trying to heal. Whether or not they're difficult to heal depends on a lot of factors. What may not be difficult for you or me can be an uphill battle for someone else. Sometimes the cards aren't stacked in their favor. Sometimes they're fighting the devastating effects of negative self-talk, addiction or a rough upbringing at the same time. You just never know what else is going on in a person's life that can affect their ability to heal.

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

When we're little kids we can act like a small scratch is killing us.
When we get old we can even downplay things that we really should be concerned about.
I think it can work similarly with our other life problems.

Among other reasons that have already been mentioned above.

Was gonna post something like this until I scrolled down n read this.

Also - comparing person A's pain to person B's is always going to be an apples to oranges comparison.

Loved that quote. Also what Voix de la mer said.
We seem to exist in the same world, but each carries a different picture, and no one can really measure the other's pain, but simply know what pain is like.

About what you said, Yota13: "Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional". I think I grasp your meaning, but still I would say a pain not suffered is no pain at all. Since it is within the very definition of pain to cause a certain amount of suffering. Perhaps one can learn to diminish that amount. The pain will inevitably be reduced by the same ratio. But if you cease to suffer, the pain ceases as well. Someone dear may die, but you will bless his/her going and not suffer. There won't be any pain.

I've heard several healers speak of why we come here. The lesson in pain is much of it, they say. Through my years this makes a lot of sense.

For instance there's a playground of kids who are told in an exercise to start from the beginning and turn to the right and tap/smack their neighbor. Well some kids are gentle and other aggressive. No two children will get the same tap or smack. As well the perception of that smack (the receiver) may comprehend. A crush or bully might have been the one that delivered the action.
In the end we "pass" on energy. We are all susceptible to pain inner/outter unless we are sociopathic. Those pains we experience, we might learn early - could bring out the meeker/weeker or Stronger/bully effects.
In love we might not understood in the moment. Reflection highlights what side of pain we leaned upon.
In some pain experiences, it's a double edged sword. No one comes away unscathed.
I feel this is the dharma/karma roles we set and live in while here.

Just my ramblings ~

One think I believe from doing hundreds and hundreds of charts is that God made everyone as He wanted them and for the purposes He foreknew and God is love, so it is all good, EVEN though, we, as humans, don't understand most of it lol
