How To Transform Pain Into Compassion

While we go through the heart of the winter with the long, dark, cold nights, it is good to remind ourselves not to resist the feelings that this season brings up in us. If we can keep ourselves open to these emotions and embrace them, we can move through them and open up space for the innerspring. Osho, one of my favorite teachers and writers, recommends a breathing technique that transforms pain into compassion.

He instructs you to breathe in and imagine that you are breathing in all the darkness and negativity in your life. Welcome it into your heart. Please stop trying to resist it, avoid it, or destroy it. That has been taking up all of your energy. As you breathe in this heaviness, let it be absorbed into your heart before you exhale. And then the moment you breathe out, breathe out a golden light. Breathe out your greatest lightness, your highest joy, love, and blessing from your heart into the source of the negativity. You can transform the darkness in your life with your breath.

When breathing out, express all the love that you have, the blissfulness, and the benediction. Pour your love onto existence. This is the method of compassion: drink in all the suffering and pour out all the blessings. And you will be surprised what happens when you really do it. The moment you stop resisting all the darkness and heaviness in your inner world, they are no longer suffering.

He speaks about the power of the heart to transform any energy into light. The heart is a transforming force, the essential alchemist. It can bring in any misery, pain, or sadness and transform it into lightness. He encourages trusting the power of the heart. Once you have learned that your heart can do this magic, keep practicing it repeatedly. You can transform the planet with the power of compassion.
