    Pain, everyone feels it. But all that is really is, is the reaction of your nerve's to your brain saying that something is going on"painful". Is there a way of chanalling that sensation and making it become something else (subconsiously).

    We feel pain when we pinch our finger or get burned but why is that painful? Someone giving our back rub is a sensation that is soothing and not painful, yes there is a different but not that much of one. Is it based on pressure, temperature, conection? Everyone will say that pain is bad but can you make yourself actually enjoy pain?

    I personally think that it is possible, you can subconsiouslly tell your mind to interprite pain different to a point that is make a sensation a not pain but almost pleasure but pain is good. :unsure:

    I guess, Guru Arjan Dev ji, Guru Teg Bahadur ji and sikh martyrs might be knowing this technique, to channelize a kind of thought-force into another one!!!

    If one can enjoy pain, then what is to stop a person from enjoying the infliction of pain upon others?

    What is there to stop one from finding pleasure in the pain of others?

    What is there to motivate one to help stop the pain of others?

    Is finding pleasure in pain a good thing?

    Dear Khalsa Ji,

    The pain is caused be generation of specific chemicals is the affected part. This leads the brain to increase in blood supply to that part which helps in repair. If one invert the system then this repair will not take place.

    I am not sure if any technique exist to do what Aman Ji has suggested and if Guru Sahib new that technique.

    What i know is that when one goes into Samadhi, she or he does not feel the pain. Guru Sahib must have gone into Samadhi.

    With love and respect for all.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
