there is a process we inevitably go through when we’re working to get to our deepest, authentic truth; to unravel and undo, unlearn and unburden our spirits from the weight of conditioning – or the lies, limits, and soul-stifling ideas introduced through socialization.

the purifying flame, as it were, is perhaps an effective, powerful way to allow whatever comes up, to come up, and then you simply burn it away. use your imagination.

no hard feelings. no resentment. no disempowering guilt, no self-deprecation nor self-reproach. in fact, it is with gratitude, and love, that we fuel this fire.

thank you. you’ve served me well. you may¬†go.

be thankful when whatever it is, shows its ugly face again. the more familiar, maybe the more ready you are to light it up, and let it burn. you don’t need it anymore, and you don’t need to hold on to it either. trust that if it feels shitty, it’s based on a lie. if it feels depressing, it’s based on a lie. if it feels degrading, deflating, unnerving, embarrassing, or disheartening, it is based on lies.

these ideas are a bridge to lands you have visited time and time again, and this time, maybe you’re ready to simply, resolutely, burn it down.

your heart will release. your mind will relax. your clarity will revitalize, and your real self will have room to come home.

love your life,
tb
