Our tendency to cling to the agencies of pain comes from our fear of lack.
And to an underlying, even unconscious, sense of separation from the rest of everything.
From each other. From the world. From God.
It’s that separation from self on which the whole thing rests. When you deny some aspect of yourself, you are cut off from the whole.
We grab onto whatever we’re used to. A known quantity. Even if it does not serve us. Even if it’s destructive.
For fear of being left with nothing.
Not realizing that our birthright and our most natural state is to live in connection and prosperity, based on the full, free expression of who we are.
