There is a ton of momentum pushing us to have a particular emotional experience of life. Much of our suffering is experienced through our emotions, which are passively and unconsciously recorded as implicit memories in our brain 24/7. We also inherited patterns of emotionality from our ancestors, retracing back for seven generations. So, our hard-drive is overloaded with patterns that seem to be beyond our conscious control.
Human beings at their Essence are innately content, confident, at ease, in touch with a sense of joy and wonder, and live with a felt-sense of interconnection and perpetual self-nourishment. It is only when we leave human Presence that we enter into the “Realms” of suffering.
