I felt sure you, of all people, would clarify a benefit of the CH-experience. Thanks for your reply. I agree with you that the experience of the abject pain suffered by CH hosts can be used to honestly comfort others in pain. We who have truly been to hell know like no one else can know.
The CH-pain experience can teach us to be more compassionate. It certainly is humbling. It certainly requires a measure of acceptance of one's situation. It certainly requires faith in the CH-process: that there will be an end to the attack and there will be a period of no acute pain.
Although the CH-pain itself seems to mean nothing, it seems we can use the experience to learn to be more human.
I'm not quite to the point, however, of embracing the pain (or fear, or whatever) of the Texas-sized cocka roacha as it crackles under the pressure of my wing-tips. That seems just a bit over the edge in compassion. Seems like they are more like minor-little worthless pests which neither God nor Satin want in their realms. I don't feel one bit bad when one gets a load of RAID and writhes in the goo. No matter how woefully they look at me holding the spray can. Fair is fair. I get a CH-attack and one of them gets sucked into the vacuume cleaner. If one of them has that hot-spot thing-a-mi-jig on its hypothalmus, I might reconsider this stance.
