The Bound Lord
The Bound Lord wants you to know pain. He allows himself to be bound, not knowing what fate awaits him in that moment. He is reminding us that pain is a signal, pain is a lesson, and that pain can give strength. We can only survive the pain if we allow ourselves to be steady and resilient in its presence. Acknowledge that it is a reminder of our fragility as a species, how easy it is to cause injury to self and others, and learn from past errors. Some relish in giving pain and some are aroused by receiving it. Both have reached a point that most avoid. It cannot be denied that there is value and strength in realizing our weaknesses.
