Breath Magic : What We Resist, Persists

Breath Magic #13

Approx 1/3 of pain is the mind habitually reacting to pain ..
the mental attitude and aversion to pain.

If we learn to focus our attention on the breath and not
tighten up against the pain (which causes further tension)
some pain will begin to soften and subside.

Recent research of chronic pain management found
meditation more effective than morphine.

Start small however.

Paper cuts/headaches/tummy grumbles are best to start with
 .. try relaxing at your desk and just focus on you breath.

Hold a gentle smile on your face and see if you can accept
pain rather than start a war with it.
