The Beauty of Working with Essence
see, the beauty
of working with Essence
is that there’s no place that you can get to emotionally that doesn’t turn out to be fine if you just stay with it. When you work with something—in this case, the absence
of the needed father—you may lose yourself at any step of the way, and then you have all your emotions
about losing yourself. But if you stay with your experience
, you realize that even losing yourself is wonderful. You might get to another state, and suddenly you will
have a self, and having a self can feel wonderful. It doesn’t matter what steps you go through; Essence manifests in all kinds of ways, and each one of them is fine. So there’s no bad place that you can get to on the essential level. Essence can manifest as self or as no-self, or as neither, and there is really no need to worry which way it is going to go. Inquiry and exploration, if carried deep enough, is bound to manifest Essence in one way or another.
