Acute or chronic pain is in itself a pain to deal with, but one need not suffer unnecessarily.
There is no spiritual
value in suffering
It does not make one a better person
Spiritually, we have the choice and the right to act for the highest good of the situation, and that means not causing further harm or more pain to one's self or others.
When one is preoccupied with pain the body is further stressed, rather than relaxed, compounding the original pain. Science has shown that stress can cause elevated blood pressure, increased respiration, gastro-intestinal discomfort, headache and more.
Why add the stress
of being in pain
to the original cause of pain?
Relieving pain symptoms may need a trial and error approach, but everyone deserves proper pain management.
Just recently, I was with my father who was terminally ill and unable to talk, so I spoke out on his behalf to his caretakers and stayed at his side till I could see he was on a plan of pain management.
Being an advocate
for the pain relief of another
is practical spirituality in action
Many blessings for
the courage to take the steps, for one's self or another, to get the upper
hand on pain management ...
