The experience of every moment of our life is a direct reflection of our nature. We never experience anything that does not arise directly from our own inner life. Life always happens from the inside out. What we know and perceive and look for is what we get. The pain we feel as we enter a room and move self-consciously from the door to the chair is a reflection of what is in us, and not what is in those people we see before us. The fact that we have those pains is proof that we don’t understand what our pains are about, for if we did understand, we would no longer tolerate their presence in our psychic system.
The realization that there are parts of us that are against us can hit us with a jolt. But when we see that these wrong parts have actually created the pains that they then falsely promise to free us of, we eagerly seek — and find — the real Friend who will bring all pains to an end. Only the Truth is on your side. When you live from the Truth, the whole universe will be on your side as well.
