There is pain in that which wounds the body and that which wounds the heart also brings pain, but the deepest pain comes from that which wounds the soul; pain so piercing, penetrating so deep into our core, that sometimes we cannot touch it except for the feeling of brokenness, hunger or absence that runs through us like dark waters streaming through a crack.
We crave for a way out of this pain. We avoid that which augments it and repeat that which soothes it into sleep.
Yet, the pain does not go away. Like an infection that is contained ~but not healed at its source, the pain; now dull, persists.
And now, the fear of this pain governs our every waking minute.
The question to put in this instance is this:
- Have I fallen in love with this pain and dread the parting from it; for this parting would throw me into an unknown life, a painless life; that is now foreign to me?
- Am I holding on to my pain because it is my Comfort Zone, my safety net, the habit and known state of my life that ~dreading it as I may~ feels real and familiar to my mind?
The tiny steps you take will be small, almost unnoticeable at first. But step by step, you will walk away from your pain into a life which you can only imagine now ~ a life of freedom.
