    I Have Had My Heart Broken ...

    I have had my heart broken a few times. I have also got a few things physically wrong with me like IBS, Fybromyalgia and Asthma, so I feel pain some of the time. You just have to learn to live with it.

    Pain Defines Pleasure

    As in most things, there is a dichotomy here.  Pain and pleasure are really just two sides of the same coin; sensation.  One draws you in, the other pushes you away.  Pain and pleasure cannot exist on their own, and without experiencing the one, it is impossible to...

    I tore a pectoral muscle and 2 other muscles around my rotator cuff- and possibly the rotator cuff itself last month. In a powerlifting competition, attempting to bench 405 lbs, I tore all that... It hurt like a mutha!

    Mental and Physical

    Some form of pain visits often.  I prefer to attempt to handle one version at a time.  Sometimes one leads to the other.  It can be a challenge juggling both.  Then again, isn't that the purpose for participating in meditation and prayer?
