Poor Tilly

Tilly got herself run over by a car. She made it happen, it was a direct result of her irresponsible behaviour!
Or maybe even Tilly is being done and maybe she’s not in pain but there is pain (Pelvis fractured in three places as well as three ribs ouch!). She’ll be OK, she’s convalescing at the house under the excellent care of Dr Tommy.

You could learn a lot from watching animals, they are not self conscious, which, laughably, many believe makes them somehow lesser then us. Self consciousness is unique to human beings and is an aspect of feeling like a contracted separate individual in the world. From that perspective if pain (or anything else) arises then it’s my pain and therein lies the trouble. The difference between there being just pain and it being my pain is indescribable and yet paradoxically the same thing. What you seek has never left you.

So simple, The same, and yet immeasurably different. Boundless.
