“Pain is often referred to as a vital sign because it is so important to monitor. Pain is uncomfortable. It is also a very personal experience, which means it is different for each person. Because we all spend time with someone in pain, we play an important role in pain monitoring and prevention.” In this light, from the divine goodness of our soul, the source of the spiritual fruit, we can help bring comfort to those suffering various forms of pain.
Pain management requires a reverent relationship to the divinity of inner life. From the goodness of our soul will flow all the qualities necessary to comfort someone during a time of pain. In contrast, when that divinity of our inward being is closed out then cruel intentions to the suffering of others will result. That cruelty comes about by what we refuse to do to comfort them, or by what we do to perpetuate their dire circumstances. The signs of being shut out from the divine presence includes a desolation of fruitful qualities. That involves unfeeling behavior that brings harm to wounds, exclusion from social interactions that convey compassion, disrespect for the sanctity of life, closed eyes to the divine worth of all creation, and negative energy fueling their attitudes. However, an openness to the living deity flowers with inner fruitfulness to motivate us to bring serenity to those suffering painful events. With that serenity is the conveyance of a respect for life to welcome those experiencing adversity into the fulness of life. In that way, we communicate the importance we hold for the divine worth of individuals even when they are experiencing agony. From the divinity of the soul flows positive energy to bring optimism to those in pain.
Pain management requires hospitality to the blossoms of spiritual fruit. If someone were to explain how they feel when comfort fills their inner life then it would comprise a various combination of spiritual fruit. From an opposite perspective, if you ask someone how they feel when in pain the explanation would reveal a need for caring attention. For example, when people feel comfort they are conveying various degrees of goodwill, kindness, and love, but when experiencing pain they often grimace and give signs of their suffering. It would be hateful and full of ill-intentions to neglect or add to that suffering, but compassionate to return love to them. Likewise, when people talk of comforting situations the spirit of meekness, gentleness, and peace exists and is far from the adversity of harsh and domineering aggression. In that light, let’s bring serenity to those experiencing pain. Also, communication of comforting situations comprise the fruit of joy, goodness, and faith but tragic consequences are full of sadness, despair, and a degree of evilness. In that event, we want to communicate optimism to those experiencing adverse situations. Furthermore, within talk about comfort there will also flow the spirit of perseverance during times of pain, self-control when self-defeating attitudes might surface, and patience in anticipation of more desirable events. In contrast, painful tragedies will often involve out-of-control behaviors, or impatience leading to tragic impulses, and even fatal consequences. To fruitfully involve ourselves in pain management we should provide the ability to endure through the tragic pain.
Pain management relates to issues involving our health. Imagine having a yard with grass you desire to keep healthy but in a small area there is a torn spot revealing the dirt and rocks beneath. While it is torn, someone continues to throw more stones into the area to perpetuate the tear in the yard. That becomes aggravating. In a similar way, imagine your inner life to be the yard or garden of the soul. Relating to that, fruitful pain management provides the kind of input which helps the yard to repair by allowing healthy blossoms to make the yard whole again. In contrast, hostility to the hurt you feel inside is akin to throwing more rocks into an already torn yard which contributes to the destruction of your health. The spiritual fruit in pain management is necessary
to maintain healthy blossoms in mind, emotions, and behaviors. Unfruitful ways of dealing with internal hurt involves intoxicating drinks, unhealthy eating habits, lack of sleep or the use of illegal narcotics to help sleep, inhalation of mood altering drugs, or deviant behaviors relating to sanitation. Unfortunately, there are people who add more adversity to painful situations by perpetuating dependence on destructive habits while opposing the internal blossoms of spiritual fruit. In times of pain within difficult circumstances it is necessary to rely on the fruit of self-control to refrain from adding more destruction to health and to allow soothing qualities to prevail. Likewise, it’s necessary to rely on patience to allow the repair of inner life to progress with new blossoms of spiritual fruitfulness to bring comfort. Furthermore, it’s important to persevere in the spirit of goodness which comes by a reverent attitude to the divinity of inner life which is the source of fruitful blossoms.
Pain management relates to issues involving our safety. Envision yourself ice-skating on an ice covered lake, but then the ice begins to crack which eventually breaks through and into the freezing cold waters you plunge. You see the bystanders surrounding you but they begin to throw heavy objects to break the surrounding edges of the ice-plain to prevent you from climbing to safety. Then to prevent your efforts to swim to shore they continue to throw dangerous objects all around to keep you pinned into the icy waters. That is a harsh, aggressive, and violent response to the trauma already felt after falling through the ice, which is an extreme and unfruitful response to someone’s suffering. In contrast, a fruitful response to that tragedy would be to call 9-1-1 or make other efforts to pull the person from the cold waters into a place of comfort, warmth, and safety. A safe and secure environment requires fruitful responses to manage pain that people experience. There are people who suffer the agony of physical harm by the violence of disturbed people, which also is found in the home as harsh abuses are suffered between spouses, parents and children, and children to children. The circumstances from day to day are more than hectic, they are chaotic to the point of making each moment unpredictable with fear. Tragically, there are people who perpetuate the suffering of that abuse by refusing to attend to the harsh aggression or otherwise do deeds or say things that aggravate painful experiences. However, a fruitful response to pain management involves conveying a tranquil spirit to those who are traumatized by hurtful situations within various situations. That serenity is very soothing when relating to a physically traumatized person. A tranquil spirit is especially comforting when people are locked into a “family” environment that is very hostile to domestic qualities. Just a tiny amount of a peaceful conveyance does wonders to give a terrorized person relief from the painful suffering they live through. In essence, fruitful pain management contributes to a safe and secure environment by conveying qualities of a peacemaker. Also, a gentle spirit flowing through us produces a soothing comfort to those living through adversity. In addition, a meek persona is comforting to people suffering painful trauma.
OUR PLACE OF BELONGING
Pain management relates to issues involving our place of belonging. To begin this scenario, we know how the flow of blood has an essential place of belonging within our body to supply life giving nutrients, oxygen, and hormones to the body. What happens if someone attempts to isolate the blood supply from flowing through our veins? We would become lifeless! Likewise, when a person is cut and bleeding it is painful and could become life threatening unless treated appropriately. A very hateful response to that pain would be to let the person bleed out or somehow causing the cut to become deeper or wider which would make the bleeding more severe. In contrast, a fruitful response to manage the pain of that wound would be to control the bleeding and close the wound in a way to restore the flow of blood to all other parts of the body. In a similar way, some people are cut or severed from a loving and desirable place of belonging. Within that unfruitful social network some people will recognize the hurt, suffering, and adversity brought on by the surrounding crowd. The tragedy is their response to the conflict you feel while among “peers.” Their unfruitful response includes further ostracizing from a fruitful society by hurling hate, intolerance, and more abuses towards the desire for a community oriented environment. It’s as if they want you to “bleed out” and just fade away from existence. However, fruitful management of pain for people suffering from being “cut” or “severed” from a loving social atmosphere involves controlling the “bleeding.” That involves binding up the wound with the snug embrace of love, tolerance, intimacy, and inclusion in wholesome social behavior and conversation. In this event, the flow of life would return to the person suffering social adversity to allow the flow of societal nutrition, “hormones,”
and “oxygen” or room to breathe. Therefore, we know fruitful pain management of social wounds involves the conveyance of the spirit of divine love, a display of goodwill from the wholesome people they desire, and deeds of kindness to display constructive intentions.
Pain management relates to issues involving the light of our divine worth. It’s a wonderful experience to see the worth of a home we consider to be a “fixer upper” as we envision the abode after all the renovations and updates. But, the painful part is the all too often experience of seeing something we cherish being demolished. They tear into the yard, destroy the main structure, rip out all the water lines, scrap the electrical wiring, and the light of our vision for the “fixer upper” is darkened. In a similar way, we might experience painful adversity relating to the feelings we have for our divine worth. When our attitude is such that we respect and bring esteem to the inner life of the human body there will be times that we experience negative input. The type of disrespectful input that causes our blossoms of fruitfulness to cringe, disturbs the value of our peacefulness, siphons a bit of our respect for life, incites a flicker of blindness to the inner divinity, and induces a moment of negative energy. An unfruitful response to the pain we feel in our sense of worth is to add more humiliation to the inward desolation while inciting hostile responses in the form of disrespecting the sanctity of life and divine dignity of another. In essence, they continue to humiliate, degrade, ridicule, and debase the various lapses that might exist of our inner life to fuel behavior with fatal negativism. A fruitful response to managing pain in the feelings of self-worth is to view one another as a “fixer upper.” That is to give us the ability to see the divine worth existing in the soul of every individual with hopes of improvement through spiritual fruitfulness. A mutual respect that allows the repair of tranquility within humble circumstances, to respect the sanctity of life when all around is abasement of life, to turn on the light of divine worth to reveal the potential of our “fixer upper” condition, and to fuel esteem with positive energy.
Pain management relates to issues involving the expression of our identity. Flowers come in a variety of species or identities and are used for multiple purposes to express positive feelings we have for others. Every flower grows in the direction of the sun where warmth permeates the atmosphere, and a wide variety of flowers populate the world. We would feel “put off” if someone attempted to suppress the beautiful energy of the flowers by keeping them cold, in the dark, and without water. Likewise, the development within the self-expression of our identity is similar to the growth of the flowers that populate our planet. Pain comes to us when there is suppression of the positive energy we desire to express who we are. We feel that pain when there is the coldness of pessimism hurled at our positive expression of self. Also, we feel hurt when people use despairing attitudes to describe our fate as if talking about a flower in scorching heat with no reprieve. In addition, there is a sense of evilness felt when the beautiful expression of our inner life is suppressed, which we know could only have detrimental results. Unfruitful responses to the painful adversity we feel in the expression of who we are intends to add pessimism to the roots of our goodness. That involves withholding warmth that would help us to grow into the fruitful person we are inwardly and to cause the beauty flowing from us to wither. Fruitful pain management within the expression of our identity comes to provide warmth to nurture the roots of the inner divinity to allow beautiful self-expression of who we are. That fruitful management of pain involves conveying the spirit of optimism to help one another to grow in the direction of the sun to radiate positive energy. In that optimism we share faith in who we feel the person is within the core goodness of their identity. With that faith, we share the spirit of goodness to convey warm intentions to see the nurturing of the total person relating to their divine “roots,” need for “water,” and to assist in reaching for the “sunshine.” With all that, we desire the person to express joyfulness from within their soul for the person they are.
Causative proponents that perpetuate pain often come through people who intend to deny comforting relief. Their intent is to impede the qualities of inner life flowing from the divinity of the soul to disrupt the soothing processes of the spiritual fruit. They even attack the peace felt within painful situations with arguments, debates, and anger that antagonizes the hurt. With that, the joy bringing comfort and the ability to smile during adversity is scrutinized with a pessimistic and despairing perspective. The extent of their interactions with people suffering painful occurrences amount to desolating the inner qualities that bring comfort in exchange for making themselves feel fulfilled. It’s as if their duty and reward is to perpetuate the pain of others for their malicious purpose. Even so, acceptance of the divine comforter existing in every soul is the source of relief during adversity because that inner goodness generates fruitfulness to relieve pain.
There are reservoirs or populations of people who intend to perpetuate the pain and suffering of those not belonging with their affiliation. We can identify those cruel intentions by the attitudes flowing through their self-expression. Their words will not provide much comfort during a time of adversity but instead adds despair or misery to the situation. Likewise, their behaviors add salt to the wound by what they do, or fail to do, in a time of need and difficult circumstances. Those attitudes transfer directly through people who intend to wound, hurt, and cause suffering to those they consider to be deviant from their “cause.” Indirectly, those attitudes transfer through people who feel their suffering would be complicated by more cruelty if they attempt to share compassion with ones experiencing tumult.
The attitude of opposing fruitfulness in pain management enter us because we value our worth and desire to be among those who are not experiencing insult to injury. During painful circumstances some people will ridicule us, add humiliation, and cause further destruction to our battered sense of divine worth. To add further pain to the wound they imply we have no place of belonging among humanity and deserve to wallow with the “swine.” In that event, to find relief from hurtful ridicule and to be salvaged from unbearable social surroundings we succumb to the indoctrination of those who are causative proponents of others misery.
The people susceptible to withholding compassion when others suffer will experience the suppression of the fruit of goodwill, kindness, and love, which causes a desolate attitude when witnessing the adversity of someone. We can interrupt the cycle of opposing fruitfulness in pain management by realizing the inner qualities of the spiritual fruit enable our social environment to function with kindness, joy, perseverance, and peace. As we convey the soft and tender qualities of our inner life we are fruitfully contributing to pain management and fruitfully contributing to a healthy community atmosphere.
We can assess that pain management involves reverence to the divinity of inner life and hospitality to the divine fruit. The diagnosis is that some people antagonize pain by hostility to the divine comforter of the soul, which simultaneously is an effort to impede the blossoms of spiritual fruitage. Even then, we plan to welcome the inward qualities that bring soothing comfort. We implement that plan by remaining open to soft, moist, and tender qualities which are soothing during time of pain. We know we are successful because we are able to help others to smile and persevere amidst adversity and feel comfort amidst grievous circumstances. The fruit of love, peace, joy, and other divine characteristics becomes our comfort.
