#34 The Relevance in the Present of Past Experiences

We often say that, it is important to learn from our past experiences and lessons learned. And while generally I still believe that, recently I find myself wondering about this. It has all come about because I find myself wanting to put everything I have ever learned, taught, believed, behind me. Not rejecting any of it. More like toys I have played with, which are now worn and shabby and no longer hold my attention or interest. Continue reading “#34 The Relevance in the Present of Past Experiences”

#33 The Fast Moving River of Life

Yes, yes. I’m still here. My silence on this blog fails to convey how often I have thought about writing. The other day my friend Marion Z wondered why I have not been writing. That slipped some sort of gear in me and here I am. But, I hasten to add, as has happened before, that I decided to write and see if in the process I can discover the answer to my friend’s question.

#28 Releasing Old Forms

Finally, a concrete movement of enough significance to focus my energy in a clear direction. The concept of releasing, letting go of what is completed or outdated is one which has been with me for many years. It is basic in the Ageless Wisdom teachings of which I am a student. Here is an example of my most recent experience demonstrating the release of an old form. Continue reading “#28 Releasing Old Forms”

#26 Pulling Free From The Past

Freeing myself from the molasses like strands that hold me to outworn, outdated, habitual thinking and ways of being, is much on my mind these days. We of course realize that, knowing and doing are not the same. I value them pretty much equally. Roberto Assagioli’s (founder of Psychosynthesis} caution is relevant to remember here.
