Cloaked by the Mind

generic_1

Our mind is like a canvas upon which we can consciously ‘create’ and bring newness into our life.

However, we quite often find that our thinking is coloured by distractions of deeply held memories, beliefs and perceptions within our sub-conscious.

And we find that instead of being ‘creative’ we simply continue to lead a life of repetition – based on these memories, beliefs and perceptions.

Holding onto things – thoughts, images, ideas, concepts or beliefs does not allow us to be creative with new possibilities and insights.

The ‘old things’ that are on our minds create a cloak over us in a way that does not allow us to realise the potential of something new.

We ‘cloak ourselves in this way, sometimes consciously or more often unconsciously, and develop a false sense of ‘I’.

Uncloak yourself and create the new you!

 

Om Shanti

Forgive and Become Free

Blame

There is often a misconception about what it means to forgive. We believe that we are doing someone a favour by forgiving them, but are we really?

What happened cannot be changed. But as long as I choose to hold onto that scene it will continue to create walls of mistrust, anger and dislike in my mind and in my heart.

The longer I hold on, the stronger these walls will grow and my future vision and actions will lack clarity. If I do not learn to let go of it, I will carry the experience of the situation with me into the future as a heavy burden.

It is not a matter of who was right or not in the situation – the question is – do I want to carry the pain of that scene with me throughout my life – allowing it to influence my thinking, feeling and responses forever more?

To forgive means to free oneself from a situation. Let go and become free.

 

Om Shanti

Forgive for the Future

the_past

When we forgive we make peace with that which happened in the past.

It does not change the past – right or not, good or otherwise – that was what it was.

Forgiveness takes place in our minds and our hearts. It really has nothing to do with anyone other than me. In forgiving I am allowing the possibility of so much more in the future.

The past cannot be changed … It is impossible. But there is no need to remain bound by the chains of the past.

When we forgive we don’t change the past we change the future.

 

Om Shanti
