  1. Sup?. How are things?Am happy that we stumbled upon this blog. I just wanted to contribute in appreciation of the things I learned here from the article. 3 years ago my brother was diagnosed with Separation Anxiety Disorder. The diagnosis was a severe tragedy for everyone in the family especially for my Grandmother. Around that time is when my brother-in-law proposed Jade Tun Noy. Jade Noy is a non-religious mind over matter expert. He taught and guided us through the ordeal. Just google him if you want to contact him.

  2. They already teach all this in pain rehab in the UK, nothing new here except the trendy label of mindfulness.

  3. You cannot generalise that morphine helps by 25%. It depends on the dose, the person and what else they are taking. I live in the UK and I hear so much junk science about opiates coming out of the USA it is unbelievable. Here medicine is sensible about and opiates are not a big bad ogre. They are used appropriately and can knock out pain 100%. Anti epileptics are good for neuropathic pain. What sort of pain did the subjects of the study have? Which of their five different pain receptor types were affected? I bet the researchers did not select patients for their study allowing for those factors. More junk science!

  4. Beautiful. When we no longer identify with the body, but instead, the life force that breathes it, the breath, as you say, Larry, then where is the pain? I’ve had a lot of dental work performed, simply breathing… also a rather grievous injury. It all boils down to “Who are we?… What are we?” Are we the flesh? Or are we spirit? – And “spiritus” in Latin means “breath”. It’s that simple. What appears to be material is shimmering light, movement. E=MC2.

  5. So many times, it seems to me that the particular content of the meditation is less important than the process it’s self. I am not a medical doctor. I am a psychologist. Breathing in the here and now is what the rest of the animal kingdom do with out getting tangled in their ‘selves’ Meditation puts us back to paying attention to our breath in and out deep and shallow. I follow a pattern taking a deep breath, holding it for a couple of seconds and then a deep breathing outl

  6. First stress and now physical pain itself, I am happy to hear that our understanding is growing. Even the pain within the here and now can be moderated by meditation. Keep up the good work
