Three words that allow us to breathe easier.
Where are they present in your life?
I was recently introduced to the concepts of ‘remembered guilt’ and ‘imagined fear’ to describe the past and the future.
They don’t allow for balance, harmony and order because we’re seeing and feeling things that aren’t really there.
They’re illusions that feel as natural as breathing because we’ve practiced them for so long.
When we’re focused on either, we’re out of our power.
Think of a bowling alley. You can’t hit the pins if you veer from your lane.
What if that’s what life really is? A never-ending game of ten-pin bowling?
We choose our ball. We choose our target. We line ourselves up. We give it our best shot.
We feel happy, frustrated or disappointed at the result.
We cringe or laugh.
We evaluate, adjust and go at it again.
If the power of the present represents our lane, doesn’t it make sense to stay in it?
