Pain. We all hold it. It is the way of our culture, to hoard and deny and suppress our pain, using all of our usual coping techniques, and then have it leak out sideways. Or to blame another, or ask others to change so that we don’t have to take responsibility for our pain. It is what we are taught and it is all we know. Looking at our pain is the holiest thing we can do, because when we don’t honor it, we pass it on. And so, when the pain is activated, the choice is ours. Will we take the holy road, and honor, integrate, and transform it? Or will we take the same road we always take, and hold it and hoard it and transmit it to another. The choice is ours.
