Walking through the Pain

Life's mysteries


Man must learn to accept his disappointments in order to learn to rely on himself and listen to his inner wisdom. The voice that is hardly heard because of the noise and clamor of this world. Pain is an organ language, telling us that something is being neglected in our body. It is a communication from our inner voice; telling us that we fail to do things that will help us in the growth process. It may be a signal for us to start moving forward and not to be stuck in the conundrum of everyday life.


Walking through the Pain


It shots like bolts of lightning

Shattering to pieces

Finding no comfort

I walk through the pain

In the land of the dead

I trod, looking for my serenity


I hurled things

Only in my mind

For I’m afraid

To destroy

The peace of the dully sane

And destructively stable world


Woe to me

For I can’t find ease

Even in alchemy

Afraid that God’s wrath

Be upon me


For relying on man’s wisdom

Will bring to naught

The only solace

I find in this crazy world


Is to go through the pain

Understand what it means

So never to go through it again


“Why me?” I ask

“So you’ll understand,”

It answers back

“That pain and suffering,

Are part of life’s test

You need to undergo it

For a life devoid of pain

Is a life lived in vain…”

      This is a very wise message about pain written in a creative way. Well done.

      One older man suffering through cancer pains prayed upon his knees and asked, "Why me?" Unable to get back up, he told one of his children that he had been answered, "Because God needs strong sons."

      Perhaps we experience pain in order to learn empathy for others who are experiencing it.

      More likely, as you state here, we experience pain as a signal that there is something we need to learn from and act on.

      MLM works and is the vehicle rsisponlbee for helping many people on the road to find financial independence, typically within 2-5 years.There is, however, much confusion and misunderstanding concerning this business model. A pyramid scheme has no real product so commissions are based on bringing new people into the scheme who in turn also bring new people into the scheme. It's usually the people at the top that get the most while those at the bottom get very little. Eventually all pyramid schemes collapse because there is no real product being sold.MLM, on the other hand, usually has a very real product that is sold either by retail or through members personal purchases (usually both). Members are encouraged to build a network of distributors to market the product.In MLM you can earn more than those at the top if you apply some effort.In a pyramid scheme you can never earn more than those above you, so when investigating an MLM company see if you can find out if there are people earning more than their sponsors, (this is the crucial test to weed out pyramid schemes)

      What a curious and interesting logic in this hub. I would never think of pain as you describe it here, and yet it makes sense.
