Leaving No Stone Unturned: The Art of Making Peace with Your Past
October 26 @ 11:00 am - 11:40 am
Are you still plagued by your past—even though you know it’s an illusion? Do you still get stuck—even though you’ve tasted the bliss of your true nature? Many of us on a spiritual path find this confusing. How can we know the truth yet still feel like the pain of the past lives on in our minds and bodies?
In our everyday lives, we feel resentful, blame our parents, and feel hopeless that we will ever find the abiding peace and happiness we just know is possible. Even with our deepest desire to live as the timeless unfolding of life, we find ourselves stuck in patterns rooted in our past such as addictions, chronic anxiety and depression, and difficulties in relationships. We struggle with fear and feelings of lack and inadequacy.
Holding onto stories from the past and repeating them in our minds keeps the sense of the personal, broken self in place—and veils the infinite aliveness of our true nature. Understanding this human suffering is the gateway to being free of it.
In this presentation, we’ll explore how consciousness contracts into believing that you are the one who is separate and wounded. We’ll study how conditioned patterns develop early on in life and learn how to identify when conditioning takes hold. Together we’ll discover that you can relate to your present moment experience in a fresh way that untangles you from the old stories and softens the emotions that underlie them.
The truth of who you are is already free of the past. And it’s right here, right now, to be known and experienced. Now available to explore beyond the old, familiar ways of being, you’re primed to discover what’s always been here…reality: silent, still, and radically free.
