Pain comes from suffering. Ask yourself this question: how many times are you going to repeat yesterday’s mistakes and dwell on tomorrow’s comings because of today’s pain? Now, I am not a rocket scientist, but I do know that this pain comes from a place of deep emotions that haven’t been forgotten or better yet, even understood. Why fall victim to a thought? Isn’t an idea something that you can control as a person? Today, I saw the world for what it was; a planet — nothing more, nothing less. I wasn’t expecting anything but good to come out of today because I wasn’t facing a false version of myself anymore. I was able to recognize my own consciousness. Me for me. Not for my body, or for the image that others saw me as. I accepted who I was and it felt good; no one was able to correct me or tell me I was wrong. I was able to shut off my pain body and also my ego – both of which are no good to a person. With that, I was seeing clearly for the first time for a really long time. I was no longer a victim of what yesterday has done for me, and I was for sure not even thinking about tomorrow because today was so kind of a feeling. I do know that it doesn’t matter how much you say you want something- it will always start with you. Change doesn’t happen if you can’t acknowledge what is causing the pain. I know I’m crazy for saying this, but when someone is pleased, they can forget that time doesn’t exist and go anywhere they want to go in life. I read this quote that made me think: In order not to die, you must die before death; therefore, there is no death.
