OUR PERSONAL DEFENSE BUDGET
All our "defenses" arise from the creative "source" of being, what I prefer to call "life energy." Each is a reaction based on instinct, past conditioning, beliefs, judgements, etc., and represents an attempt to protect from any possible security threat(s), often associated with "uncomfortable" feelings. Dwelling inside, beneath layers of defense, lies profound vulnerability, which, when compassionately contacted, reveals the fearfulness of non-being, i.e. loss of connection with being alive. So, in essence, our defenses, adopted to support us, are just as much an expression of "life energy" as any other manifestation of being human. When defenses are acknowledged, accepted, and appreciated as such, something fresh can happen. Oddly, there seems to be less energy devoted to opposing it.
