just think about it. its not. if you actually think about it. its just your mind tricking you into thinking that somthing is bad so you dont do it anymore. but if you tell yourself its not there, it will go away. I got this bad cut a little bit ago and i took some of that hand sanatizer and rubbed it in, and it diidnt hurt.

that hand sanitizer stuff doesnt burn these days :dodgy:

yes, as hard as it is to believe, we have progressed so far that antibacterial substances such as hand sanitizer do not have that sting anymore.

pain is always there though, unless you remove that part of your brain. you can train yourself to ignore it, but that kind of mental training can take months or even years. you cant just decide one day "hey, i think im going to ignore pain from now on." it wont work. for example: monks in india were protesting by meditating in the middle of the street, blocking traffic. people started getting angry, so they poured gasoline on them and set them on fire. but they were in such a trance from meditation, they didnt even know they were on fire, and they burned to death without knowing it.

could YOU burn to death without realizing it? i doubt it :hug:

he might not be able to stop it.. but some people can. I still cant believe those pictures of monks burning themselves. I have one of the pictures taped onto a notebook of mine actually. then mental power is incredible.

paint took what i was gonna say...its not something you can decide, but with training you can train yourself to ignore it..and yes, it is just something that relays to your brain and tells you its happening, but isnt that how everything works?

I believe with enough practice and meditating stuff pain can be taken away to a point.
I even more believe that fear can take pain away.
I once had 3 stitches put into my leg, and i didn't feel the pain at all. I was just raelly scared of stitches, and didn't want to have to deal with it.
Also when i had to get the 52 stitches in my arm from glass (some of you saw the pics/thread), there was no pain at all. No tears, nothing. Just scared i had hit my artery and stuff. It actually wasn't bad at all. Just looked nasty.
