This is a self-healing method in which you have to be continuously alert, conscious, aware, whatsoever you do. If you feel pain, be attentive to it, don’t do anything. Attention is the great sword — it cuts everything. You simply pay attention to the pain.
Sit silently unmoving, and you feel many problems in the body. You feel that the leg is going dead, there is some itching in the hand,— be watchful, just give your total attention to it. You feel itching? — don’t scratch. That will not help. You just give your attention. Don’t even open your eyes. Just give your attention inwardly, and just wait and watch. Within seconds, the itching will have disappeared. Whatsoever happens even if you feel pain, severe pain in the stomach or in the head watch with total attention. It changes its chemistry. New things start happening and the body is in a chaos. Sometimes the stomach will be affected, because in the stomach you have suppressed many emotions, and they are all stirred. Sometimes you will feel like vomiting, nauseous. Sometimes you will feel a severe pain in the head because the healing is changing the inner structure of your brain.
You simply see the pain in the head, watch it. You be a watcher. You just forget that you are a doer, and by and by, everything will subside, and will subside so beautifully and so gracefully that you cannot believe unless you know it. Not only does the pain disappear from the head — because the energy which was creating pain, if watched, disappears — the same energy becomes pleasure. The energy is the same.
Pain or pleasure are two dimensions of the same energy. If you can remain silently sitting and paying attention to distractions, all distractions disappear. And when all distractions disappear, you will suddenly become aware that the whole body has disappeared and you are healed.
