The pain of death is much different than the pain of theft. The mind deals differently with any number of different “pains” that wander in and out of our lives. Medical doctors can deal with “brain pain” at most, but where do psychiatrists come off telling us what kind of pain we are experiencing and how to deal with it?
Time does not heal pain; time distances the event so it does not feel as severe. Most pain stems from love. The loss of love leaves a pain of emptiness that is filled with the pain of loving memories.
There are professionals that believe that psychiatric medication can give us better lives. This is only a temporary solution and most definitely not a cure-all in the long term. The setbacks caused by chemicals to the growth of natural mental inhibitors can become devastating. Anti-depressants destroy our spirits, our spiritual development, and the means to deal with our lives as we grow towards higher enlightenment. We were created with a full rack of emotions. Quite frankly, I like my emotions, no matter how severe they are. Pain and love are both gifts. Without pain there would be no growth, no redemption.
Trying to curb sorrow and depression with artificial chemicals retards growth as a spiritual being. This chemical approach has the ability to destroy my brain and prevents me from growing as a person and dealing with one’s own individual life. These chemicals stop me now from achieving the strength needed for processing future pain. Pain grows more severe as we mature. The levels of pain are layered. Each subsequent event is more severe. The accumulation of pain stemming from the experience of prior events buffer the severity of subsequent events. Without natural strengthening subsequent events can become unbearable and destructive.
We are G-d’s children, his creation, his achievement, his image. G-d won’t give us more than we can handle. Even if you don’t keep in touch with the Almighty when you’re feeling good and prosperous, he’ll be there when you need him. Just because you’ve been ignoring him doesn’t mean he won’t listen and help. G-d is overjoyed whenever with whatever. There’s just one thing. G-d can only help you within the confines of Free Will, yours’ and every creature’s.
G-d exists and so do we, but we limit ourselves and burden ourselves with the factors of Time and Free Will. Give G-d a chance. Give man’s Free Will a chance. Give man the benefit of the doubt and hope his choices governed by Free Will are good. There’s always the other side of Free Will and things may not always work out in this life because of Evil Inclination. Believe in the life to come and know that your Good will eventually heal the wounds and G-d will pave the way for you. G-d knows the ins and outs better than us; after all he is billions of years old. G-d always finds a way. Live in the Almighty’s existence and don’t ignore or neglect the Time factor for the sake of the flesh. Console your sorrows by replacing them with thoughts of anticipating the future of resurrection, life, and eternity with full joys and enjoyments of all you love. If you are experiencing mourning, the Lord suggests sweet red wine to stabilize your heart.
Grow in the love that you are immersed in and strengthen in the silence of your pain. Never ask for love, GIVE IT. A constant output of love gives you a will to live that overcomes and stabilizes any pain that comes your way. The tears that may pour down your face are filling you with a reservoir of life-giving waters that will drown your sorrows and ease the pain. Don’t be embarrassed or afraid to cry or shed tears. Tears strengthen the heart. The more you love, the more you will feel G-d’s presence. There is no doubt that we cave in once in awhile from our fellow creatures’ wicked attitudes and beastly inclinations. The powers of Nature have often left many creatures confused and gasping for breath. G-d’s creation has feelings which we cannot possibly comprehend in our diminutive existence. We react to natural catastrophe within the sphere of our own minds, but are too selfish to even bother considering the Earth as a Being with feelings. There is a spirit of Almighty G-d’s that permeates all of creation; it is made in his image and likeness. Love yourself by loving all creatures. Take your pain and embrace it. After the tears dry up you’ll emerge a stronger, healthier being.
