Right from the beginning our biological urge for survival primes us to be guarded against life: one day our bodies will die.
Until we fully embrace the flow of life, which includes physical death as part of that movement, we will continue to have the embedded belief that we are separate from each other, from life itself – like a vase standing out from its background. This goes hand in hand with the belief that there is something inherently wrong with us, that we are bad, unworthy, guilty of something undefinable, and that as a result something dangerous ‘out there’ will attack us.
We were born into ‘sin’, or separation, or brought it upon ourselves like Adam and Eve.
Our bodies contract, muscles and nervous systems pull back from life – beliefs are reflected in bodies.
