it’s interesting how our perspective on past events changes as we get older.
as we explore, experience, and mature, we want to know and discern the meaning of things for ourselves, and life is always providing the ways and means to glean wisdom from our tripping and falling and stumbling over our own feet.
what’s quite interesting is that i think we can, in essence, time travel. within our own consciousness, within our own story – along this timeline we are traveling on – we can observe and conspire with our younger selves, and thus alter our present selves. we are in effect shifting our perspective on the past, and integrating a new awareness into our now.
we already do this on some levels, though perhaps unconsciously; the self-examination-through-time-travel idea manifests as healing and revelation, personal growth and self-knowledge. when we learn something about a parent, for example, we can begin to connect the dots and then have the opportunity to jump back to a certain powerful memory and/or event and decrypt a new layer to the story. we can thus, ideally, alleviate some weight or burden we’ve been carrying forward as a belief about ourselves. we can diffuse the negative aspects and transmute the judgments into acceptance and understanding. it’s a variation on forgiveness. this is life-altering energy work.
we are empowered when we realize that, as per usual, the meaning we assigned to an event was made up in our own mind, but not in actuality what the event represented. the work of the late Morty Lefkoe (mortylefkoe.com) addresses this concept masterfully. check out his work if you are keen to let go your limiting beliefs, and change your life, perhaps more quickly than you would have thought possible.
there is massive freedom in letting go the knotted towlines. lightness begets clarity, and more lightness. as we move forward individually, and as a collective, this process will accelerate. there are more teachers and awakeners and conscious activists than ever before. we are becoming unfazeable (should be a word if it isn’t). it only takes a small percentage of us to shift the entire game. like the saying goes, it’s the little things that count…
our life resonates along a certain trajectory, with some key points and passages opted into and designed beforehand, but the innumerable nuances and breadth of substance through the experiencing is fairly wide open, i would presume. ideas and ingredients we choose to introduce or integrate alter this trajectory constantly, thus our perception of and experience of events and people changes. what and how we feel tells us moment by moment if we are relatively close to or leagues away from our truth. now, it’s important to elevate our presence through conscious effort in addressing our hurts and holdups.
do less, imagine more. talk less, feel more. work less, adventure more. reclaim your authenticity through diligent effort and focused intent, and thus be more of who you already are.
