What is it to suffer? How does pain manifest in our body? There seems to be different types of pain. The ability to be aware of pain is to still be aware of our humanness. There's physical pain, there's mental pain. Is mental pain different from emotional pain? The learning experience I got on pain was during one of the meditations at Vipassana. I was sitting for long stretch of hours trying to meditate. With a lot of physical pain due to restricted movement, I was overwhelmed by it. As I began to be aware of my body parts, I realised that I didn't feel the physical pain whenever I shifted my awareness on other things. Attention and awareness seems to help us to either suffer, love, feel be humane.
