Dissociation Anonymous is a flight from sorrow?

What happens when sorrow takes place? 

We think panic and fear are usually the first reactions to this sorrow.. And then comes the question.. how will we deal with that.. is there something we can do? Is there an intellectual movement, a method, a trick that works with such situation? So we feel this sense of sorrow and once we use our brain trying to find an escape to a no-sorrow state We struggle within ourself.. that very moment it seems that division takes place.. we against ourself which is full of sorrow, which is actually Sorrow. So we are Sorrow and we want to remove our very own skin, its the Ego that is Sorrow and wants to be No Sorrow. But sorrow is not something attached to the Ego, so as to cut it out, its the Ego Itself. So is it ever possible for the Ego to achieve it? We may say “come on don’t think about it”, or “sorrow is inevitable, we have to live with that” or “no, it’s not sorrow, we are just fine”. Such approaches can cause a minor relief in pain involved with this sorrow, by hiding it in deeper layers. But sorrow still exists and it burns and when hidden its much more dangerous because it’s much harder to observe it.

So what do we do? we really don’t know.. having seen that the brain can’t help, we are sitting still, not reacting, waiting, watching it for a while. 

Silently watching it, all thoughts that are arising from this sorrow (thoughts about the sorrow and thoughts about the challenge that finally brought this sorrow) are perceived.. in the beginning perception is full of judgement, disappointment, but while the time goes by it seems that the Ego is getting less strong, it seems non judgemental awareness is possible.

In the meanwhile, there is pain, the stomach is in ache, the muscles are tense.. in the gap that appears after perceiving one thought and the rise of another, these body side effects are also perceived! And then suddenly in the length of a single moment everything get’s in its right place. Suddenly we realise there is nothing to worry about.. but this realisation is not a product of the intellect.. we feel it deep in our body.. there is nothing you can do and there is nothing to worry about.. once you feel this deeply, conflict ends, we don’t struggle anymore.. we take a huge breath, we finally feel our body relaxed and a strong passion seems to rise, a pure joy, a sense that everything is inevitable.. and it’s not the intellect behind all these..
