The ONLY REAL way to eradicate PAIN is to EMBRACE it...

This is not to say that one should WELCOME pain in some sort of masochistic way...
No,,not at all...
Nor should one REVEL in the potential MARTYRDOM inherent therein....

It's more like this:
Think of the metaphor of the GREAT WAVE ON THE OCEAN....
There are only two choices when faced with a HUGE, CRUSHING WAVE...
One can TRY and jump over it, which can ONLY result in calamity and/or fatality...
or...
One can simply DIVE DIRECTLY INTO IT....and safely and CERTAINLY come out the other side... unscathed...

Pain is a a mandatory component of a well-rounded life....
Without it, there would be no sense of WELL-BEING or SATISFACTION....
For life is a series of constant comparisons....
We judge and emote and reason
ONLY as a result of "tapping into our empirical dossier"...

Is this making sense ??
