This is my little friend that I carry with me everywhere. The Weeping Buddha is not a new story but I have taken it and appropriated it as a symbol for being a pain champion. If you see the pain and sorrow in the pose you realize that this person has experienced another level of communion with something greater than themselves.

To be a pain champion you first have to know what pain of this sort is. It’s the kind where you live life for days, weeks, or months curled up in a ball.

Once you know that kind of pain and beat it on a regular basis by living life anyway and helping others who also know that kind of pain to live their lives… YOU ARE A PAIN CHAMP!
