Light and Darkness are the same, they make each other one whole–one couldn’t exist without the other. Pain and joy are the same, just different degrees in this life of experiences.
The mind separates pain and joy, suffering and bliss; and when this happens the mind creates a duality, and you become anxious and frustrated because you compare the experiences. Love one and hate the other.
People demonize pain, they crucify it, and always escape it like the plague; however, while doing this you are demonizing and crucifying yourself, because you are the duality you created.
Healing is facing whatever experience, whatever sensation or feeling you might be having. Trying to escape only opens the wound and makes it vaster, stronger, more pungent; thus you become more desperate, traumatized, isolated and angry.
