My question in my mind recently was - how I could be mindful in the midst of difficulty, such as physical pain, anger, confusion and related state of mind. So far I was able to pass simple itch when meditating, i Just go back to breathing and the itch just simple goes away. With regards to pain, well I could again pay attention to may breath, but it only last of minutes, when I lost mindfulness of breath, the pain goes back. Same thing happens with anger and confusion.
Is there a mantra that can eliminate pain or discomfort while meditating? I don't know if I am doing it right. But I can't sustain the level of tranquility. My first mind reactivity is "I need to get out of this- or this not right" It is a trial and error, sometimes I win sometimes I lose. Can pain and mindfulness go together without losing it? Thanks.
