The ego maintains a state of inertia that tends to cloud our experience. So often we don’t even recognize that we give ourselves over to an inherently incomplete story rooted in separation and alienation. Michael points out that we are made up of Emptiness and what arises out of it and what dies back into it.
Once we see that we are infinite at our core, we can begin to see that this self we’ve always believed in is a partial reflection of what’s real; that we’re more that what we think we are; that we’re more than anything we might identify with. From this perspective we can see that we can’t take anything with us. Once we can open around this truth, we can stop resisting life and begin to live more fully as a conscious expression of freedom.
