I was going through some old papers today as I was organizing my office (again!) and found this written on a piece of paper….not sure where it came from but I was glad to discover this wisdom again. I am sharing it with you because I feel like no matter what an individual has gone through or is currently experiencing in their life, this absolutely applies. I continue to sort through my pain and past conditioning, hurts and disappointments, sifting through the clutter to discover a clearer mind and a centered heart. I hope you will discover the same. Love and Peace! Sandy
By recognizing that our unconscious emotional reactions to others are reflections of our own emotional past, we begin to break the illusion that other people are making us feel these things. That puts us in a position of strength rather than feeling like a victim of circumstances. From there we need to heal the pain from our past so that our history of trauma does not continue to generate more suffering in our present. To do that we need to make the unconscious emotional patterns of our psyche more conscious. Meditate daily to bring a permanent sense of self-awareness present in all your thoughts and behavior. The stronger that self-awareness is, the more the light of that consciousness will penetrate all the dark recesses of your unconscious mind. That light of consciousness is healing and non-judgmental and just its background presence will remove your past conditioning and bring a sense of abiding peace.
