The Pain-Body in the Workplace

If people could take a sick day from work for a pain-body attack, we would probably find much more malady in the general population than we currently realize.

Check out this training video script from the HR department of a future Fortune 500 company I uncovered (humor alert: this doesn't really exist):

Employee: Director Fincastle?

Boss: Yes. Come in. What is it?

Employee: I'm going to need to take the rest of the day off.

Boss: (Walks around desk and sits on corner) Is it your pain-body again, Redmond? (Takes glasses off) Why, that's the third time this month?

Employee: Actually, sir, it never went away. It's . . . persisted.

Boss: All right, Redmond. I understand. But I think I might have someone take a look at that, if I were you.

Employee: (With great sincerity) I'm about to do just that right now. (Looks at camera) And that someone is me.

We dissolve the pain-body in exactly this way, by looking at it. Rather than delving endlessly into the past--which doesn't really exist except as a mental construct--we deal with it in the here and now, this present moment (which is the only thing that really does exist). We dissolve the pain-body by focusing our attention on its manifestation as pain in--you guessed it--your body.

If Redmond, in our training film above, had done this earlier, chances are good that his pain-body would have been dissolved then, and he would have been more productive on the job. But some pain-bodies are quite dense due to extreme or long-term build up of negative energy, and these can take longer to fully dissolve. But in time they do dissolve.

And only through awareness.

What's Your Drama?

Ok, I'll go first. My drama has been to allow my pain-body to take over my thinking in the context of a love relationship. No...
