It often seems our past experiences are calling all the shots. When things don’t go well for us, we put those past experiences into our “future” and stamp it as something we’re afraid might happen again. We don’t ever want that “something” to happen again. If things go well, we store that past experience in the future. We then take our experiences, which are already behind us, and we make decisions about how we feel and think about them. By doing that, we lock ourselves into relating to the past experience as if they were going to happen again in the future. That’s the wiring that needs unwiring.
Trying to resist or avoid the enormous influence of the past, foolishly keeps us focused on it. We tend to be reluctant about leaving it behind. We then become lazy about transforming the hold it has on our present lives, by not doing so results in a “now” that’s littered with all the stuff from the past. By recognizing our “wiring” is calling the shots instead of us, we’re are left with nothing!
“Nothing” is a “clearing” in which we become fully ourselves. “Nothing” creates the future so it can come into the picture. If we’re going to create a future in relationships, work, and our lives – it’s a matter of saying so. It doesn’t rest on anything – it rests on nothing and that’s the foundation for possibility. By creating possibility, we learn the possibilities of being human.
So, my advice is to GO OUT AND DO WHAT HUMANS DO – HAVE SOME FUN – RUN – SING – DANCE – BE SILLY!!!
