the fullness of our emptiness

resistance causes pain

Expectations are created by preconceptions

the sense of separate self
is learned not experienced

Resistance creates tension and stress

we are the creators of our experience
by our responses to what happens

any one experience can be perceived in a myriad different ways

responses grow out of our conditioning and reference systems
fear.. happiness... including denial of feelings

our feelings are reliable messengers

when we embrace
we accept

when we accept
we surrender

when we surrender
we let go

when we let go
without resistance
we experience our emptiness

when we let go of self
we cease to be separate
from the divine intelligent universe
