    Firstly, thanks Jon for the right up, it's truely overwhelming. My own fair understanding of pain is this, both pain & pleasure are subject to emotions and emotion is inevitable even though they are equally subject to choices (my convictions here).Whatever emotion you feel it depends on your interpretation of it. We are in the phisical and the most densest plane and these are the factors that dominates here so no matter how much we try we'll experience both - it is just inevitable. But how long we want it to last in us depends on individual. For me the simplest way to controlling (not stopping it) pain is through accepting it choosing to let it go. Remove your focus on how deep it hurts and agreeing with yourself that it's a lesson you have to learn here to more higher.
