    Hi! I've been reading a lot about buddhism lately and i found a little quote that i hope will be useful to someone.

    The ultimate method to overcome pain
    (1) Don't have intention to overcome pain.
    (2) Don't fear pain emotionally.
    (3) Accept pain as it is.
    (4) Just endure pain at the present moment

    This list is taken from the text Zazen, A Better Way of Experiencing Pain - a talk by Gudo Wafu Nishijima -. It's free and it can be found on here.

    If pain allow you, please practice Zazen, it has truly change my live and i'm pretty sure it can help a lot of people in this forum.

    If pain doesn't allow you to practice Zazen, you should do it anyway, trust me.
