Pain - Osho

This pain is not to make you sad, remember. That's where people go on missing.... This pain is just to make you more alert - because people become alert only when the arrow goes deep into their heart and wounds them. Otherwise they don't become alert. When life is easy, comfortable, convenient, who cares? Who bothers to become alert? When a friend dies, there is a possibility. When your woman leaves you alone - those dark nights, you are lonely. You have loved that woman so much and you have staked all, and then suddenly one day she is gone.

Crying in your loneliness, those are the occasions when,if you use them, you can become aware. The arrow is hurting: it can be used. The pain is not to make you miserable, the pain is to make you more aware!

And when you are aware, misery disappears."

The post seems exceedingly glorifying pain and all associated feelings.
I somehow, personally dont feel very much good about the gloomy and the dark shades of such expressions.

Detached from personal opinion, I feel this is a good post.

I agree pain is good if used!
It prepares you for 'more'...
more of pain, more of life, more of sensitivity, more of love, more of responsibility, more of 'you'!!!....
