204. Heart-pain and mind-pain

The pain of your heart
And the pain of your mind
Can never be the same.

Your mind's indifference to pain
Is the real proof.

Your heart's acceptance of pain
Is the real proof.

The difference between heart-pain
And mind-pain is this:
Mind-pain escapes from the body's cage,
Heart-pain lingers in reality's life.
