    "walking on the razor's edge - we are the present moment" is a powerful statement.  while being in the present moment of pain is to acknowledge and claim its cutting edge, knowing that feelings pass and fade away without resisting it.  verballizing it is a way of distancing from the present moment which actually makes pain more intense by dwelling or lingering on and around it.  in this fashion, pain begins to be a threat and thus becomes belligerent and vengeful.  being in the present moment without judging is the only way to peace.
