See Pain Consciously
Q: You say we must let agony rise from the unconscious to the conscious level. But that seems to add even more agony.
A: To see a pain consciously is no worse than living with it unconsciously. Like a physical wound, it is just as painful in the dark as in the light, but we don’t see it. So evasion or suppression only perpetuates agony. Remember this one point. Remember that conscious pain is no worse than unseen pain, though it does operate in a different way, which brings release.
