Clarification on some SCS-isms

some questions for clarification, thank you
is this correct
1. feeling bad 50% of the time is because every movement toward new desire creates new contrast. Meaning, we cannot escape growing pains and temporary disappointments as we continue to evolve.
2. energy + thoughts work together to create outcomes via our actions. Energy can mean personal energy or in combination with something greater than ourselves. Feelings are a measure of the energy (is that true?)
3. river of misery is that point at which we are beginning to make good progress on changing our thoughts, feelings and actions, but our animal minds do not like to change, in fact they like sameness, so as we push against that sameness we should expect to feel like we are in the battlefield. There will be many many thoughts about why we should not change, how hard change is, etc.
