Addictive Pain: What Will You NOT Do?

Psychological pain is real and it can even be very addictive. Does this sound strange to you? Are you experiencing this type of pain each day without realizing it? This is very likely true at a given level. Unfortunately, a person is usually not conscious enough to realize the severity of this pain. It is happening more often than you may “think”. However, please remember that the mind is impartial. Your state of awareness, in other words, decides how you will experience each moment and not your mind.

Psychological pain is real and it can even be very addictive. Does this sound strange to you? Are you experiencing this type of pain each day without realizing it? This is very likely true at a given level. Unfortunately, a person is usually not conscious enough to realize the severity of this pain. It is happening more often than you may “think”. However, please remember that the mind is impartial. Your state of awareness, in other words, decides how you will experience each moment and not your mind.

What is your relationship with the mind? This is the key question in consciously awakening to a state of deeper presence. Moreover, this means that how you react to the mind is insignificant to living more consciously. This may first appear to be a contradiction. Nevertheless, to clarify, this suggests that how you “respond” to the mind is ultimately beneficial.

This acknowledgement can be very helpful. This is useful in understanding how you are reacting to addictive mind impulses instead of responding to a state of presence. Please practice differentiating between these two states of being. A reaction to any mind behavior is usually done unconsciously and thus conditioned. This feeds the addictive pain in our daily activities.

Conditioned Addictive Pain vs. Responding Consciously.

A response, on the other hand, offers a totally different perspective. This state of being, in presence, nurtures the expansion of object consciousness. Therefore a response to any situation is non-threatening and alleviates addictive psychological pain. This will create space and it instantly becomes obvious that you are non-attached from all details within a given moment.

The addictive psychosomatic pain attached to a reaction happens because a conditioned reaction usually always results in initiating more reactions. Furthermore these will continue to be repeatedly reactivated. This can occur over a few hours, a few days and even years if a person is not able to shift from this addictive tendency.

What can we practice daily to become more aware of how we interact with the minds thought commotions? The first step is not to become overly demanding in our attempt to become free of the mind and live more consciously. It is a process and should develop naturally. Therefore, there are no rights or wrongs.

You will reach a deeper state of awareness. It is already happening. This will offer a space beyond the mind that can perhaps best be described as nothingness. This is the unmanifested energy where your conscious garden can grow. It is always best to nurture this garden with love. What will you do when the mind reacts to something? Let’s rephrase this question. What will you NOT do? It is usually better not to do anything. Likewise simply respond to the spaciousness that is here now and everything will unfold naturally.

Best wishes
