"All healing is essentially the release from fear."
When we experience anger it is because we have reached a degree of perceived separation that is so 'real' that we feel utterly alone. In that state of apparent aloneness we are left with what seems to be no choice but to lash out, blame others and defend our existence.
But you are never alone and you are never separate and the path to deep peace is easily within reach if you allow it.
The implication of this quote above from the great Roman stoic and Emperor Marcus Aurelius is that we look outside of ourselves to know ourselves. It is my opinion then that in doing so we diminish ourselves and in fact contrary to the former part of the quote, we love ourselves less. Not less than we love others but less than the complete state of love that we should have for ourselves. It is this lack of self love that stifles our confidence and puts us on unstable ground in whatever we may endeavor.
When you can step into self-forgiveness and self-compassion you can experience self-love. And from that self love you can do, be and have anything you want. That is true self-confidence.
Your mind is an incredibly powerful tool and when you can learn to harness it to influence your body, emotions and life, truly amazing things can occur.
Is it any wonder then that research is showing that the more we understand pain, the less we hurt? When we have better conscious understanding of the mechanisms of pain then the pain will often diminish. However, when pain is a mystery, the mind and emotions perpetuate and exacerbate the pain sensation.
In David Butler's book, Explain Pain, he points out that even after the physiological cause of pain is resolved our body's production of stress chemicals such as cortisol and adrenaline will cause the pain sensors to trigger. In other words, even if there is no cause for physical alarm in the body, when your body senses a threat it replays the sense of pain that it had been so accustomed to signaling. So our conscious and subconscious mind have a large role to play when it comes to pain.
Chronic pain in many cases may be chronic because the mind-body association with the pain has not been resolved. A pain that you felt a decade ago can suddenly rear its ugly head again when you are under stressful times.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
