  • The pain of transformation


        PAIN can become a very creative energy. It can become a remembrance of God. It can become prayer. It can become meditation. It can become awareness. It can cause tremendous transformation in you.
       
    An important secret of life that you need to understand is that if you become aware of something, you can get rid of it very easily. If you are not aware of it, there is no question of getting rid of it. The pain is a pain because it exists in your unconscious, not in your awareness. Your fear of facing the pain allows it to exist and grow more and more — like a tumour. A master will simply remove this tumour through his ‘master surgery’! And when it leaves you, you transform into a new person.
       
    What is the attitude needed to deal with the painful ‘surgeries’ of the master? Sometimes, just the awareness itself will dissolve the pain. Now, what is the correct attitude to deal with these painful ‘surgeries’? It is having complete trust that whatever ‘pain’ the master causes is only for your good and nothing else. The ‘surgery’ itself is because of his boundless love and compassion for you. If this is clearly understood, then even if it hurts, you will go through it with deep gratitude for what the master is doing to you.
     
      One more thing: the pain is also because you start thinking it is a pain and labelling it so. The master can teach in just two or three seconds what will ordinarily take a lifetime or a few hundred years or a few births. The master is intense life. He will just remove the ‘tumour’ and throw it away. So, even if it is intense, it is better to go with the master than with life because the master does a very quick process. Also, if you understand what the master is doing to you, you can enjoy it as the ultimate happening in your life.
       
     Further, the pain you will experience continuing life with the ‘tumours’ will be much worse than the pain you experience when the master removes them. Removing a ‘tumour’ will take hardly a few minutes; the master just removes it. Over. Once you understand this, you will no longer label the transformation as pain, you will welcome it.
     
      This story may sound very strange, but this is the way of most Zen masters. Pain has a tremendous value in awakening you to reality. That is why it has been used by many masters to awaken the sleeping disciple.
       
     In the moment of great pain, the mind stops, there is only pain. In that moment, the Truth is delivered!
     
      Be Blissful!
