PAIN

Here I focus on the positive side of pain. Pain exists for a reason and handling it well can be used to help one grow stronger both physically and spiritually. Physical pain can help one read ones body, so one can better push ones limits in a demanding physical exercise program, and learning to handle(cope with)emotional/spiritual pain can help one to become better at handling in a positive way the whole spectrum of emotions with all their intensity that are part of life.
The more pain one can handle the more truth one can handle. It is painful to have ones delusions/fantasies shattered! It is painful to face a stronger dose of reality. Life’s lessons are often painful. Pain can tend to wake people up spiritually. Growing stronger spiritually requires one learn to handle the painful emotions of life really well. I train in a way that puts me in very difficult and uncomfortable spiritual/emotional states for a reason. It is hard to bring more spiritual truth to a world that tends to be addicted to autocratic type spiritual beliefs and not that open to more rational/practical spiritual beliefs that are designed to connect one more strongly to this reality we exist in here, and enable us to make a positive difference spiritually here as a result. Our world is really messed up spiritually because the predominating spiritual beliefs that exist here are inadequate!
