A Balanced Approach to Wellness

My knee hurts. Just started hurting. Did I do something to cause the pain? Is the pain real?

Pain is multi-dimensioned. The physical dimension. The awareness dimension (acknowledging and noticing the pain). The action (taking steps to relieve, ignore, or reduce the pain) and observant (more than awareness–“seeing” the pain and connecting it to possible causes) dimensions. And if the person is conscious of Spiritual Presence, then the spiritual dimension.

Ignoring pain is mistaken behavior. As written in The Gift of Intuitive, Dedicated Comfort:

“People should be aware that their body needs nourishment, sleep, etc., but many people see ignoring the body signals (hunger, tiredness, urges to eliminate, thirst, pain) as marks of control. They think that by ignoring these “annoying” feelings, they become better, stronger people. They err in their judgment.”

Caring for the body is a personal obligation on all. Caring for the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual components.
