most of our past experiences are reinforced into our present when we do not process them completely. when we either reject or avoid what arises within, we are likely sinking it into our subconscious mind to deal with it later.
meeting suffering as an opportunity to awaken compassion within instead of an obstacle we must get rid of, helps us to hold the presence and space for it to dissolve without being reinforced.
everything becomes more open to change when we change the way we relate to it. when instead of meeting what arises with resistance and reinforcing inner conflict, we can turn inward and hold a compassionate presence for what is temporarily passing through us, we more easily heal and break the cycle of our past, without continuously recreate it.
with awareness we can recognize the movements within us as reactions and as mostly a product of our past, and not become fully absorbed or identified with it. and with compassion we can then hold the necessary space for it to dissolve without being reinforced by our resistance.
as we become the gentle presence for what passes through us, instead of being in conflict with it, we free ourselves from our past and create the openness to invite what most support us instead. 💛
