After today’s meditation exercise, I found a new way to approach my past that’s been haunting me for such a long time. In my meditative state I went to a place where I’d stored away my past in a big closet. Inside the closet there was another smaller closet with a black door. I cleaned out the bad things in my closet and stored it away in the second little closet, locked the door and placed the key inside my pocket. The rest of the things inside the bigger closet was now organized according to three categories; knowledge, wisdom and experience. Today I’ve stopped talking about my past as thisdark and looming shadow that’s always stalking me, today I’ve decided to start using the good things that my past has brought to my present moment as a guiding light – as the source of my knowledge and wisdom.
