One believes oneself to be in pain, or receiving pleasure, about something or other. Something in consciousness seems grievous or welcome. “Your pain” might be “somebody else’s pleasure” and vice versa. Who knows what illusion of life without the Father is held in consciousness, and what its fleeting meaning was? It came, and it went, like everything in consciousness does. It (the content of consciousness) all comes and goes, and it’s meaning comes and goes with it. No meaning is permanent in consciousness; meaning can be whatever mind whims.
With the body as the focus of attention, one might describe the very same conditions as painful or pleasurable, depending on what is held in mind at the time.
What’s the first adjective that comes to mind right now? Can you surrender it?
