we carry our past on our backs, so to speak, we are forced to face
the fact that in the end we are going to get away with nothing.
We are our own judge as well as our own executioner.
fact that so many of us spend our lives running away from taking
responsibility for ourselves proves the point. People avoid any
situation that will not make them look good or feel good. Problem
is that the avoidance proves that the individual already realizes
that they are not equal to the situation at hand. There is much
to be said for learning to stop, turn around and facing the music.
is a lot of psycho/spiritual energy/manna to be gained once a person
decides to turn around. The only way to transform and transcend
anything is to will it. How can anyone avoid paying the price
for being himself or herself?
you avoid, you perpetuate. What you will, gets done. If it was possible
to leave the past in the past, I would say ‘go for it’. Turn away
until the day you die; but the problem is that in order to avoid
the Truth, you have to know the Truth in the first place.
if, like the Prodigal Son, you manage to muster up the courage to
turn around and face the music, you will find The Work walking towards
you to help.
