We live in a time of multiple addictions. People leap at insensitivity. No one knows the value of feeling what is going on inside. They leave treatment to the experts while personally checking out. Not feeling pain has become vastly commercial. Adds everywhere as well as from personal pushers present drugs as offering wonderful highs which turn out to be brief to be followed by terrible falls and confusion.
One uses a drug to take away the pain. But taking away our pain is a personally significant if not a life-threatening mistake. If you do not feel your pain, you are not driven to find its cause. It is like skating on thin ice wearing goggles painted black. Your pain is not the problem even though you have been taught to think it is which makes removing pain your solution. If your symptom signifies thin or broken ice, removing the flag which signals danger may cause you to fall in and drown.
It is personally dangerous taking pills not to feel your misery. As an opium drug addict, or a mixer alcohol and downers, you may end up dying. Most people blame drugs for your demise. But the real and underlying problem which led to this is that your life is horribly empty and you feel helpless. You are a family rejected or sexually abused recent or even not so recent child who knows no way out. We do not recover from such abuse alone. You lack a helpful parent, lover, friend, guidance person to take your hand, value you and help you.
Taking pills keeps the doctors, drug stores, drug factories going full swing. The drug taker supports this complex industry by being its dependent victim. How many doctors seek a cure rather than keep you in a chronically ill, pill-taking state:”… see you in 3-3-9 months. Here is your appointment.” Taking pills like Valium keeps you plodding along in a loveless marriage where you do not discuss your discontent. It keeps you indifferent to your children who hate you in its wake. It allows you to engage in anti-social behavior without feeling pangs of conscience. Once high, nothing is real.
There are plenty of alternative, non-destructive, ways to heal cancer, diabetes, M.S., AIDs, Lupus, etc.. But these are not taught in medical school largely because a pharmaceutical business cannot own the food or herbs to heal you which are natural and long present. They cannot be patented and sold at inflated prices. Not taking the natural approach leads us to take the often useless or destructive chemicals and somatic invasions that don’t cure the disease and even lead to death.
Say we have a slow-growing tumor, 10 years old and ready to grow another 10 unnoticed. It is discovered by our doctor who predicatively panics and demands we have it removed, yesterday. The operation is done taking out the tumor and nearby organs, muscles, flesh, veins, nerves. It is followed by chemotherapy via life threatening poisonous chemicals which destroy our immune system so that the cancer is sure to return. The next level of invasion called “protective,” is cutting off the adjacent organs deemed likely to be invaded like the breast. If the problem is in our prostate, radioactive “seeds” are inserted there. Can you imagine the effect this has on your body? You have fallen into the medical ditch and are unlikely to get out.
Say you are unhappy about your marriage, job and family. Do you investigate what is wrong there and what you can do about it? Do you talk to your partner? Or do you resort to pills, grass, booze, have flimsy affairs which may end the marriage? The child within your mind pleads with you to try different life experiences. The drug-oriented adult say no to this because he wants instant relief. The drug taker closes the door to change.
To all people suffering pain from any source, it ‘s possible to try a new approach and another one after that if still unsatisfied. When experiencing the wonders of an experiential and investigative life, the source of the trouble is removed and the pain goes away.
