Have you noticed that whenever you forgive someone, release a resentment, heal from anything, what you have done is return to yourself? We have an originating place, a starting point for our own Be-ing. All Good starts there. During the Olympics this week, there have been a few “false starts,” when a participant jumps out before the official signal and delays the race. They must start again. It is akin to us as we act on false beliefs of lack or fear or self- rejection. Our desire is delayed. Nothing changes until we clear our mind and return to ourselves, restore our sense of who we are and what is possible and begin again.
This “going out and coming back” is something we have done all our lives without being aware of it. Once we learn how powerful it is to release what we have believed to be true, and to rethink our position, our lives are so much less stressful and more productive. It is a considerable shift from looking at the objective world to know what is true, and to find Truth within our own mind. It is there. It is the wholeness, the pure potential factor that is the core of everyone.
Think about it. Every great story of someone overcoming great setbacks or rising out of poverty or horrible abuse, is the story of someone who returned to Self and wrote themselves a new story. Nothing happens without a change of mind and, as the Buddhists state, “nothing changes but Mind.” Mind does not age or run out of power or new ideas. It is always exactly what it has always been; the voice of the creating universe whispering its presence in every one of us.
