Transforming pain through Remembrance


Nature of Suffering
By Roger Fontaine, nov. 2010-11-09
As Remembrance Day approaches I have been reflecting on the nature of pain and suffering.
Is pain and suffering partly or mostly atonement for our sins and those of our fathers and their ancestors?
What gift can we be to our fathers beyond the gift of our presence, of our accomplishments, of our shortcomings?
Do we give our fathers the opportunity to teach us values which are held as primary?
Values can be transmitted but wisdom has to be experienced to bear fruit.
We must live this life as if it was our only one.Each life is precious.
Suffering: prolonged experience of pain can be transmuted into service and atonement for past negative karma by ourselves, our fathers, and our ancestors.
Do we inherit our fathers’ and our ancestors’ suffering and past sins when they pass if they haven’t atoned for their past negative karmas?
How are we responsible for the past collective negative karmas which our fathers and ancestors have created?
Can we transmute our pain and suffering into a positive outcome by dedicating our pain to the removal of a specific negative karmic accumulation by humanity in general, or by a particular individual specifically.
That way suffering is not wasted in victimization and self-pity.
By design and choice we can transform our futures. From what would otherwise be a seemingly meaningless series of events and experiences, positive and negative, we can select our future choices which colour our personalities and shape our characters to become the persons we want to become and mould our mindless fates into our meaningful destinies.
Regrets are realizations of poor choices which, having been otherwise, would have produced different results with perhaps better outcomes, perhaps not. That’s why regrets are a waste of mental and emotional activity and substance.
We give too much power to regrets when we attach strong emotions to those mental formations because feelings when strong water our deep seeds of inadequacy, low self-esteem, and unfulfilled desires, yearnings, and expectations.
Is it wisdom to notice that love has run its course when a relationship has run dry and love has been invested elsewhere.
Attachment begets grief. Detachment begets inner peace and bliss and freedom from pain.
Not that it’s easy. It isn’t. That’s why we grieve: to remember how deeply we loved those who are gone.
So let us remember those who’ve given up their lives in wars so that we can continue to enjoy the freedoms which our nation ensures and protects; let us ensure that their pain and suffering will not have been in vain.
