I just wanted to say thank you for this video. I live with a chronic pain issue and the way that you explained this was incredibly helpful. I’ve done the rounds with doctors over the years and the conclusion is that it’s going to be lifelong. The only ‘apparent’ practice at this point, whatever that means, is to continue to recognise and remember that there is no one there to resist or not-resist the pain, rest in non-conceptual awareness, don’t touch anything, etc., etc., etc. This doesn’t mean I can’t still seek out medical professionals.
Your video so beautifully explained a truth that, after many years, this life is beginning to actually orientate itself around. There are days where the story is that pain obscures clarity, others where the pain is apparently one of many doors to a clarity that may have otherwise never been experienced. Who knows? Who cares? Hopefully no one.
I would love to have a Skype at some point, however right now money doesn’t permit it. It makes perfect sense why your fees are relatively high, and I’ll be happy to pay them should my situation change.
Thanks again, Fred.
