Our relationship with time is central to our relationship with ourselves. Past, present and future are not just descriptions of time’s unfolding, they also tell the story of three significant states of consciousness. These could be described as the ‘memoried self’, the ‘experiencing self’ and the ‘anticipating self’. The experiencing self relates to the present, the anticipating self relates to the future.
The reason most of us are unable to move out of our unhappiness, hurt, pain and negative patterns, is because we are unhealthily bound up with our pasts. In truth, the past is meant to be our primary reference library, the place where all of our experiences reside. However, this huge resource is not our enemy, it is our friend and ally – if only we would allow it to be.
Take this opportunity now to make peace with your past and watch how readily you find clarity and contentment….
