QUIZ: How Is Your Emotional Pain-Body?

In Eckhart Tolle’s opinion, emotion is the body’s reaction to a certain idea, to the mental interpretation of a specific or imaginary situation. The ideas generating emotional reactions are often pre-verbal, that is, they remain unspoken or even unconscious, and they often appear in early childhood. These unconscious assumptions generate emotions in the body, and these emotions will in turn generate further thoughts or actions. A negative emotion is one that is poisonous for the body, it upturns the balance and harmonic functions of the body. The carrier of the negative emotions within the individual is the Pain-Body.

By Pain-Body, Eckhart Tolle means emotional pain. Apprehension, hatred, self-pity, remorse, rage, depression, envyness etc. are all manifestations of the Pain-Body. All emotional pains suffered by the individual during their life, remain a part of the unconscious of the individual for the rest of their life. All negative emotions, emotional suffering that the individual refuses to face, leave a mark in their unconscious. It is particularly difficult to face with, and to treat powerful negative emotions in childhood. Such unprocessed emotional pains constitute the foundations of Pain-Body. In the collective unconscious, every individual carries their own share of collective human pain that also belongs to the Pain-Body.

Would you like to get to know the nature, structure and dynamics of your Pain-Body?

Ego and the Pain-Body

The emotional component of the Ego is constituted by the unprocessed emotions concentrated in the Pain-Body. They occupy human mind. Pain is inseparable from the Ego identified with the mind.

Ego means the conventional, ordinary ”self,” which constitutes the common mistake in which the illusory belief in the personal identity is rooted. This illusory self will then be the basis of all mental processes, human relations and the interpretation of reality. The structure of the ego is an unconscious factor, which forces the individual to reinforce his/her identity by joining an external object. The content of the ego will then be the thing with which the individual identified him/herself (my house, my car, my child, my intelligence, my opinion etc.).

The emotional components of Ego are different in every individual; they are larger in some people and smaller in others.

At most people, Pain-body has a dormant and an active state. Events that coincide with patterns of pain previously experienced by the individual may easily activate Pain-Body. An apparently insignificant event may activate an old pain in the individual, retrieving thoughts and emotions caused by old pains that occurred several years previously. Physical or emotional abuse, loss, a sense of abandonment may activate Pain-body particularly easily.

Any enjoyment, emotionally high state also hides the potential of pain in it, and this pain may with time be manifested. Enjoyment may therefore be transformed into some form of pain.
