How We Create Suffering

Everyone has experienced physical or emotional pain at some time. There are, however, two different kinds of pain, which come from quite diverse “places.” One of them is called real pain, and the other, imaginary pain, or more commonly, suffering.

Suffering is always created by our unconscious resistance to real pain, but real pain does not demand suffering. When we speak of pain, we’re referring to a very comprehensive type of pain, defined as a contraction of energy.

We can experience pain in different levels: physically or emotionally. In fact, when we hear the word “pain,” we often think of acute physical or emotional manifestations. Pain can also be described as discomfort, tension, stress, or be perceived as something untimely or “out of place.” Pain is anything that prevents us from feeling well with ourselves or anything that doesn’t feel well within ourselves.


Real Pain


When there’s real pain, it’s most important to acknowledge it, to give it a place, and to feel it completely. Pain isn’t a nice thing and we shouldn’t expect it to be. By giving it a place and feeling it, we let it move, circulate, and be transformed. The conditioned response of denying and resisting pain only makes it worse and we end up storing it in our body for some later moment. Ignoring the pain or distracting one’s attention from it does nothing but perpetuate it.


Imaginary Pain


When imaginary pain is triggered, it hurts because our mind has decreed an inner emergency state based on
beliefs and decisions that have been elaborated during past painful experiences. Imaginary pain originates in the
mind and is immediately transferred to the body, causing every sort of problem, because it often remains stagnated, without being either explored or processed.

Whenever there is imaginary pain, there is a mind that generates it and a physical and emotional body triggering sensations and feelings that want to move. The mental becomes physical, confusing, and distorting, resisting what was
real in the past and what is real in the present. Reeducating our mind and reprogramming the toxic thoughts, beliefs, and unconscious presumptions can be done, and what we call suffering will go away with them.
