Pain is NOT Your Enemy – A Spiritual Life Hack

In this brief spiritual talk, I discuss how pain is not your enemy and is not to be avoided if you want to grow spiritually. Pain can be transformed through awareness, but only if we stop running away from it. Then we can live a life free of mental and emotional pain. Once we are liberated from mental and emotional pain, we can live a loving life of freedom, happiness, peace, and joy.
