Everything is Transitory - Thoughts and Pain

I had a very bad toothache during my long two-day flight. When I reached Singapore, I was planning to stay in the transit hotel but then decided to sleep on the terminal. It didn't make sense to get a room because I sleep on the floor. When I was sleeping the toothache became very sharp and painful. At one point I lost my consciousness and was becoming very upset because, for the past five months, I've been having injuries and surgeries on my body - one after the other. And it felt like I had it and then I regained my consciousness and meditated on the pain. I noticed how I reacted in the past, where I will take it personally and say “why me” and then the anger will rise. Well, this familiar feeling rose very strong and I just watched it. After 25 minutes, the feeling began to fade away and finally I was able to sleep. I only slept for 40 minutes before I began my practices. 

Knowledge destroys old habits and karma. It is a gradual process.  Anything produced from the sense organs, organs of action, body, and mind is transitory. It all passes and your true self is patient..patient with calmness and stillness.....
