Most “hang on” behaviors were learned in childhood (when our options were fewer) and, though more sophisticated by now, essentially rely upon the same protective strategies.
 
The very best tools are seldom called upon, because many of us were not taught how to use them.

Our reality is painted by past hurts, regrets, “oops”, etc. which are still to be forgiven or even acknowledged – both by other and self.

Forgiveness gives rise to freedom and understanding, to momentum forward, wisdom and even compassion.

It releases us from the blame game, feeling trapped or helpless and somehow the victim of circumstance. It allows us to take back choices which automatically spread into all facets of our lives – past, present and future.

We have all felt time race and drag, stop and start again with blanks or gaps in the stream.  From Einstein to the present, modern physics and much of metaphysics question time’s vary existence. 

Yet how can something we have all experienced in so many variations not be real?

It does exist – because we create it with our brains.  And, you can learn to exert conscious influence over it.

From first cell to last breath, every one replaces itself and passes on what has been learned.  This downline is consistent throughout the entire body – from brain to heart to bone.

Trillions of cells, most with millions of components, operate in cooperation with each other most of the time.  How is this possible?

Our bodies learn new skills, develop allergies and immunities, repair injuries, handle breathing and digesting, and keep us upright and moving without much supervision on our part.  

Some(one/thing) must be driving this bus…

Whenever we have feelings but don’t have permission to express them, we set in motion many physiological strains.  A simple analog is to imagine having your car’s brakes on and pressing the accelerator at the same time.  Friction and smoke are the common result.  It makes sense that this feeds the inflammatory cycles within our bodies as well.

We are all human, and our shared purpose is to elevate that state.

If you really want what you say you want,
you must not hide; 
you must commit;
and you must be willing to desire.

If we hide, can we enjoy success if we stumble upon it?

If we won’t commit, how will others be drawn to support us?

As we are entering the holidays… here’s an encouragement to choose in each moment how safe you are ready to feel:

Without trust there is no belonging – and there is little enough of either in the world.

“A good description of having healed is:

- Physically you are capable of doing what you want without fear of pain or reoccurrence;

- Emotionally you are responsive to present events instead of using them to recreate past hurts;

‘Until one is committed,

there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, 
always ineffectiveness, concerning all acts of initiative (and creation).
