A Moment for Pain

I have carpal tunnel. Shooting pains in my wrists. Numbness in my fingers. Loss of function in my hands.

I’m not going to pretend I prefer pain to its alternative, but at the same time: what a miracle it is to feel pain!

We so take for granted the miracle of Existence, that we have the nerve to reject one aspect of it, and to demand another!

Of course, the evasion of pain is part of the miracle of life, but can’t we take a moment once in awhile to see that even pain is fucking miraculous, that even our deepest discomfort is divine?
