'So-called karma is generated only when we try to stop movement [of thought or emotion], when we grab on to it and try to fix it, understand it, get rid of it, organize it, whatever. But as presence, you're just the space within which the movement happens.' - Jon Bernie

'When faced with an emotionally powerful experience, our conditioning is usually to contract, to stop the feeling, and so people often have to relearn how to feel, which means learning to get out of the way and allow the movement of feeling - which can be nothing less than terrifying if it's not how you're accustomed to being. Surrendering in this way may feel like dying, in a sense, or completely losing control. But once you've gotten through it, it's an enormous relief, like taking off a tight shoe.' - Bernie
