Man in pain is man in his ego.
If pain is a large part of that person’s existence, then that person exists to a large extent in his ego.
The pain goes away when we turn our perception away from it and towards the spiritual security.
The person in pain knows that. But he also knows that when the pain goes, a large part of his ego goes. It is the fear of what comes after the pain that keeps this person in pain. It is the fear of his ego of his own loss. Of his own transformation.
This fear leads to sham actions that soothe the conscience and has given rise to the fable of „working on one’s „issues“ throughout one’s life“.
The only subject in our life is being human. Being human means being with others.
Achieve the middle and then live the rest of life being human.
„To reach the middle“ means to find a conclusion in one’s works. It means to finish the work.
