All the emotions are being generated by clinging to a false self, by trying to protect a false identity. The way out is to pay close attention and notice when the contraction would come up. This way you can start seeing things in a helpful perspective. And you will see that every emotion relates to an identity attachment. This is a journey of emptying the mind, for it requires questioning every value that you hold. Not one can be kept hidden, or it will obscure your learning. Practicing this will lead towards the experience of consistent joy and peace of mind.
David Hoffmeister tells us that the clever one, or ego, which he refers to as an ingenious puff of nothingness, created a world to distract us from who we really are, and can be overcome simply by listening to and following the Holy Spirit.
As we allow our minds to be trained and we become uncompromising in our desire for truth, we can start to have fun with this world of hypothetical thinking. The Holy Spirit leads us from the heavy burden of identity-confusion into the lightness of being Christ-Identified.
“How simple is salvation! All it says is what was never true is not true now, and never will be. The impossible has not occurred, and can have no effects. And that is all. Can this be hard to learn by anyone who wants it to be true? Only unwillingness to learn it could make such an easy lesson difficult. How hard is it to see that what is false can not be true, and what is true can not be false? You can no longer say that you perceive no differences in false and true. You have been told exactly how to tell one from the other, and just what to do if you become confused. Why, then, do you persist in learning not such simple things?” T-31.I.1
