Too many control freaks in the healing tao….
This is why grounding is so important.
When you get sufficiently grounded (ala Iron Shirt and physical body practices like Tai Chi), you can just allow your emotions to manifest, without being hooked by them. You can just watch them as a neutral observer, like one watches a crying child from a distance.

I like control because i can fit in with my environment, however the wisdom of needing balance of different states and understanding myself goes hand in hand with that control.
