It is not in mastering our emotions— a calculated controlling of our mood or feelings—that wholeness is found. Rather, it is in opening ourselves up to actually experiencing those three-dimensional, powerless moments of sadness, anger or surprise; it is when we are truly vulnerable, imperfect and even broken that we hear and begin to appreciate the nuanced nature and healing harmonies of dissonance.

Control wants things to stay the same, to find consonance in the constant. Whereas a realization of powerlessness allows a person to be moved, to tap into the flow of feeling what others feel, to be awakened to see yourself in the other, and maybe just maybe find a feeling of love for them.
