“The energy field of old but still very-much-alive emotion that lives in almost every human being is the pain-body. The pain-body, however, is not just individual in nature,. It also partakes of the pain suffered by countless humans throughout the history of humanity.” Eckhart Tolle (from The Power of Now)
Now we can see social media the field in which collective pain-bodies can form, come to the surface and activate conflicts that transmute their pain into the power of anger. Pain that is blamed makes us feel the victim, and isolated victims will come tighter to raise their first and shout: We will. not take it anymore….(at their imaginary aggressors). The Collective Pain-body will have to create then enemies it needs to blame. It is the scape-goat for their pain that becomes the rallying cry, the target, and the cause of their identity.
This is the Perfect Trap because one can’t give up their pain as it has now become a collective identity. One no longer feels isolated and forgotten, but now you are a might force of pain. The irony is that one is now invested it keeping not only your imagined enemy in your mind but the pain as well. This becomes a self-generating vortex which in trying to remove the pain, only increases it.
