It needs to be emphasized that
pain at its deepest levels is a warning that some limit and barrier
that we have imposed on your creative spirit is being challenged or
has been exceeded. There is no need to cause pain. Pain will arise
to communicate what needs to be communicated. There are easier and
gentler way to deal with any limit and barrier that exists in our
life. Pain may be the vehicle to raise that limit and barrier to our
attention but is it is not something we must rely upon to get our
attention. So there is no need to create it.
However, there are those that are creatively “disadvantaged.” If you
use pain to get what you desire, you are creatively “disadvantaged.”
To be creatively “disadvantaged” is to be unaware that there are
easier and gentler ways to get whatever you desire. But to use those
methods you will have to give up what you have found successful in
One aspect of creation pain is that, consciously or unconsciously,
pain can be a created experience for the purpose of manipulation.
Individuals have much invested in their unhappiness and in pain. A
lot of emotional energy goes into dealing with pain. One issue is we
sometimes are reluctant to give up our pain just because we have so
much of our life invested in pain. At some level we think we do not
know how to live without pain. So, living without pain is more
frightening that living with it. So, we continue to create pain
because we seem to be more in control of our lives that without it.
To break this approach if you find some aspect of your life stuck in
pain is to ask your
intuitive guidance what you can do to create and move into a
more pain free life. Then
honor the intuitive guidance you get and pull the string on what
you get until you create what you desire.
Another aspect of creating pain is that pain gives an individual
excuses. Pain can call forth compassion in others and that
compassion can be used to manipulate others. Usually this is not
done intentionally but often it is the only way the individual knows
how to get the attention of another. On this note, it has been
observed that some are in pain with the specific intention not to
manipulate others but simply to awaken their compassion.
It needs to be realized that nobody hold us in misery or unhappiness
- we hold ourselves captive in our pain. In reality, if one is
miserable, one is responsible for the pain they create but no one
wants to accept responsibility for their own misery. It is much
easer to point to another, to something external to oneself as the
cause. Ultimately we shall see the choice is ours to be happy and/or
in pain within the realization of the
creativity perspective, pain is only
awakening us to an aspect of our being that is asleep. The major
issue around pain is that we have
lost it origins as to how we created it and why.
