Turn Your Pain Into Power

Pain.

Why here?

Why now?

Why me?

Why us?

What is pain?

Is pain permanent? Is it temporary?

When will it end?

 
 

We are not born here to feel a life of pain. It is so foreign to our natural state of pure being, yet we are surrounded by it. It is so unnatural to our truth, but it is here anyways.  

Pain is here for a purpose, not permanence.

Pain is a learning state.

Pain is here to teach us the parts that we must still heal. Pain is here to teach us the parts that we need to forgive.

Pain is her to be the signal that change is needed, and needed now.

Pain goes deeper and deeper until we finally awaken to the reality that it is our call to action.

Pain is here for a purpose, not for permanence.

Pain is here to teach us what we do not want in our lives, in society, in our environment, so that we can consciously make a change toward the thoughts, actions, and perspectives that we do want for our society.

Pain is the signal that we must see whoever has hurt us as ourselves. It shows us that no matter what happens, we must forgive and we must come together as one in order to heal. 

Pain is pain is pain is pain.

It all serves the same purpose.

Love is love is love is love.

Pain is here to point us back to love.

Pain is here to empower us into change.

Sometimes we fear pain, sometimes it drives us to our knees, sometimes it breaks us down and we shout, Why are you here?

But pain is here to teach us. Pain is here to show us that there are parts left unsaid and unhealed. There are parts of ourselves, our country, and our society that are left unheard. This pain is our call to action.

Use your pain as your reason for shifting your perspective, for opening up to oneness, for being able to see your neighbor as yourself.

Instead of shutting down in times of pain, we must endure and ask, "What is it that I am to learn from this?"

Pain is here for a purpose, not for permanence.

Take pain and use it as your catalyst for change.
