On the same team 

 

We are on the same team, the unpleasant experience and me.

It makes a big difference when I get to see this, and to the extent I recognize it.

We both want freedom from the suffering. And, really, what we want is to be free to experience what’s here.

It comes from a wish to protect this human self. It comes from a deep caring. It comes from love.

We are both presence. Consciousness. Love. We happen within and as presence.

The unpleasant experience can be an emotion, a body contraction, scary thoughts, emotional pain, physical pain, cravings, discomfort, uneasiness, and more. And although it may help to (think we) know this, what really helps is exploring it and see what we find. Is it true that we are on the same team? What do I find when I take a closer look? When I explore it through dialogue, heart explorations, inquiry? When I gently rest with it?

Both want liberation from suffering (or, more deeply, really, to experience  whatever is here)

Come from caring, love
