When we are preoccupied with the movement of thought, we go from one polar opposite to another. We desire a person and then fear that we will lose  him or her. We enjoy a big house but feel constantly threatened that we can not pay the mortgage if the stock market collapses or we get laid off. We feel happy when we get a new car and unhappy when somebody scratches it. It seems we are constantly pulled into an endless succession of things, people and situation. We lurch from one crisis to another. Is it a wonder that we are stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed? How do we go beyond the movement of thought?

The key is to create space in our lives so we move between space and form. We create space when we allow things, people and situation to be as they are. We don’t impose our rigid expectations on them or try to bend them to our will. We then feel a sense of aliveness within us that wasn’t there before. Our thinking becomes clear, fresh and creative. Miraculously, things and people come to our aid. Situations become less harsh and even benevolent. Why? Because we are friendly with life and are able to feel the sweetness of being that is present everywhere. We become part of the totality.
