Pain does something to your consciousness. It can either contract your consciousness or expand it. It is entirely up to you and your force of will. Your will is everything as an independent unit of consciousness and as part of all consciousness.
Most of us never ask for pain. It is either served up in abundance or not. But it comes to all of us. Many sacred traditions teach different techniques of coping with and transmuting pain. Learning these techniques is essential in a world run by psychopaths. Not knowing makes it easier for consciousness parasites to take root in you.
We come into this world knowing exactly who and what we are and it is the psychopathic influences in society and home that make us forget and go to sleep to kill the pain.
