We’ve all had fearful experiences as a child and as an adult, and we mostly react by mentally escaping into the illusionary corridors of time. In this mentally manufactured dream world we pretend everything is all right or will be all right some time in the future. Through fear, we trade being present for the mental armoury of pretence.
Through embracing physical presence we change our approach from fearfully hiding in a mental dream world to recognising ALL experience as an opportunity for growth.
Embrace today, fellow warriors of love; be present and grow!
The quality of my experience is determined by the quality of my emotional condition.
My emotional condition is determined by my willingness to fully face my imprinted childhood emotional charge without turning away and to fully digest it with gusto!
Anxiety, irritability, fear, anger are all echoes of a suppressed childhood emotion that’s never been allowed to surface. We’d rather sedate or control such feelings with meds, alcohol, drugs, TV or worry.
There is another option.
By being aware in the present moment through meditation and other portals, we are able to sense the causal feelings behind our discomfort.
Perceiving these feelings without condition, releases the movement of energy (trapped in the inner-child) and allows it to flow freely and harmoniously again.
