When the pain-body becomes active it begins devouring your consciousness. It has succeeded in convincing you that you are the pain-body! Your entire mental process and sense of self is completely aligned with it. And it knows it. The pain-body is now in charge. It has taken over you, your speech, your sight, your perception, and most importantly, your emotions and all the pain that comes with them. And this is when you have, in a sense, become the pain-body. The true you is no longer. And at that very moment (at the time of consumption) the last thing in the world you want is to be at peace. You want war! So what do you do? You go looking for an enemy.
If you came upon a wise old mystic during this active stage of the pain-body and the wise sage said to you, “There is such a thing as life without pain,” you would probably kick his teeth out. This is because the sage would not be talking to you, he would be talking to the pain-body. Remember, you’re long gone.
In relationships, the pain-body may remain hidden for many weeks, even months in some cases where both partners are living in a place of total bliss and everything appears to be as right as rain. And then one day, when you least expect it, either your or your partner’s pain-body will suddenly arrive on the scene. Let’s say it’s your partner’s pain-body that shows up first and so something you do–or don’t do–will trigger it off and he makes a snide, condescending remark (seemingly out of nowhere), and when he makes it his face will be all distorted and “sick-like.” You’ll be left wondering, who is this ugly person who just made that derogatory comment? And so that will be your introduction to your partner’s pain-body.
The amount of time a pain-body remains active will greatly depend on how heavy it is and, of course, how much of a reaction they can provoke from others around them. The more people they can upset and get a “rise” out of, the better. Some people who have super heavy pain-bodies will not be able to be around others for long periods of time simply because everyone will be constantly pushing their buttons and then that’s when the pain becomes too unbearable for the host. Of course, the pain-body loves the pain, but the host is only human. The pain-body is not.
For me, I had to retreat for three years before I could completely heal my pain-body. Of course I saw people sporadically during that time–but only briefly. I couldn’t be around my family, friends, no one that I knew intimately. The more you love someone the more it hurts when they push your buttons, and when you’re carrying a heavy pain-body, your emotions are raw to everything they say. The most banal remarks are twisted around in the mind and translated as a hostile attack. That’s when every day of your life is like walking on pins and needles.
