     Pain, at times, exists.  Suffering exists when we are attached to "no pain."  Accepting some pain can remove suffering caused by the second, and third etc. arrows which are often self-inflicted.  I have seen people get rid of headaches, for instance, by giving the headache pain a shape, then a color, then moving them around their head, and then finally, attaching balloons or some other imaginary device to move them above the head at which time the pain ceases. sSlf hypnosis is another powerful tool to help  rid one of pain.Thanks for another excellent article. Warm and kind regards to everyone
