It’s the common denominator in creating a cycle of consciousness that makes us uncomfortable…all so we can create comfort. Ever notice we do this when we ride scary roller coasters, watch horror movies, or willingly experience any event we know will cause us at least mild distress. We call it entertainment. If it gets really intense we may call it something different. In the end, it’s about immersing ourselves in a perceived consciousness that is uncomfortable to bring us back to peace and comfort. And the more we want to brought back to peace and comfort, the more we immerse ourselves in discomfort. This is the cycle of contraction and expansion, with grand dramatic cycles creating some of the most significant shifts in our consciousness.
