Pain Body vs. Presence

"Be the silent watcher of your thoughts and behavior. You are beneath the thinker. You are the stillness beneath the mental noise. You are the love and joy beneath the pain."

-Eckhart Tolle 


When we have not healed our inner wounds, there is a thick cloud surrounding us known as a pain body


This pain body is sensitive when touched and engulfs us in its...pain. 

Similar to the idea of teleporting in time, it takes us to the familiar feelings of past pain whenever triggered, even if it is not happening now.  


Sometimes we forget that we are not our pain body, but we are the mindful human witness. 


To enjoy what is happening now vs. operating from a previous pain, we must practice healing presence. It is a patient practice that requires us to let our guard down and be vulnerable. 


Just like a flesh wound, emotional pain may simply scar over, but when it is left unattended to it will remain and open a sore spot


Like water to sugar or salt, when we engage in mindfulness, our pain points dissolved in the preciousness and power of presence.
