EP 0019 – Original Pain Work
Original pain work is the most challenging work you’re ever going to do. You can read as many books as you want. You can listen to as many audiobooks, you can listen to as many podcasts, over and over on an endless loop, it is comforting, it does feel good when you hear somebody that speaks words that you needed to hear, you feel understood, somebody finally gets you. And there’s a comfort in reading those words and hearing that voice say them, but it’s never going to remove unwanted feelings altogether.
Sitting with painful feelings and re-experiencing them, teaching ourselves that we can handle them is the way out of your pain and the path to joy.
