experiencing versus understanding

Understanding is an intellectual exercise.It does not help to alleviate pain from its roots.It merely manages the pain through an understanding of it. By doing it we escape experiencing the pain just as it is, without any defence, alibis, excuses, justifications, projections and so on.
Pain just IS.
And we have to JUST experience it, not explain it.It is just there all the time across a host of events and people.
And when we experience, teh miracle happens for "the nature of experience is bliss". It is independent of the content of experience.
