You Are Not Accidental

"You are not accidental. Existence needs you. Without you something will be missing in existence and nobody can replace it. Thats what gives you dignity, that the whole existence will miss you. The stars and sun and moon, the trees and birds and earth - everything in the universe will feel a small place is vacant which cannot be filled by anybody except you. This gives you a tremendous joy, a fulfillment that you are related to existence, and existence cares for you. Once you are clean and clear, you can see tremendous love falling on you from all dimensions. " Osho

Somatic Experiencing

“For growth and development, any live organism and its supporting environment must be in intimate contact, However because of our cultural conditioning, as well as frightening and aversive events from the past, we have learned to block this organic flow.”

“Perhaps the most concrete reason to pay attention to your body is that it is a ready tool to resolve various physical, emotional and psychological symptoms.”

“…’simple’ awareness, along with a fortified tolerance for bewildering and frightening physical body sensations, can seemingly, as if by magic, prevent or dissolve entrenched emotional and physical symptoms.”

Peter Levine (2010, pg.290-291) 'In an Unspoken Voice'
