Disengaging – Turning Towards

Here is a quote sent to me the other day. It’s part of an article published in 2018 in the magazine, Tricycle 2018. Seems topical!

In turning toward our pain there’s great freedom—a freedom that grounds us in our core of being. As we slowly but steadily undo our various ways of fleeing our pain, the energy we’ve invested in getting away from our pain—as opposed to simply being with our pain—is freed up, becoming available for us to use for truly life-giving purposes.
Robert Augustus Masters, “A Painless Present”

and here is an interesting thought from Wittgenstein.

You learned the concept ‘pain’
when you
learned language.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
