Point Me Toward Tomorrow! #goodbyepast #spiritualadvice #psychology #SOM

If we hold on to the past and won’t let go of it, then how can Source replace that negativity with something wonderful? You have to make room for your good, by letting go of that which has not served you well. Just let it go! If you think you will change the past by thinking about it, hoping for something different to have happened, or wishing for revenge, you will stay stuck forever! Again, let it go!

I just saw a friend’s post from my old neighborhood as a child. He was with his beautiful little family, happily married, and currently—he is president of our high school class—which means he keeps up with all of our classmates until the next class reunion.

When we were both children, we were in similar familial situations with an abusive, alcoholic parent, a troublesome home life, and little social acceptance. At the last class reunion, I watched him in amazement, now outspoken, very motivated, and equally happy. What a perfect picture of the song from A Chorus Line: “What I Did for Love.” The lyrics are:

Kiss the day goodbye.

And point me toward tomorrow.

Wish me luck, the same to you.

And I can’t regret, what I did for love…

Gone, love is never gone as we travel on,

Love is what we’ll remember!

Reviewing the past to help us grow is one of the few things we can do with the memories of the past that is actually helpful. But, once you have finished your review, you must, once again, let go!

Before I left Nashville for my life-changing journey to South Florida, I wrote my memoir. I wrote it for myself. I called it “Learning Alone.”

It reads like a novel, moving from one disaster to the next, especially where relationship is concerned. Unintentionally, I had recapitulated my broken childhood in almost every intimate relationship in my life. After rereading the memoir, I should have thrown the book away. However, I decided that I would go one step further and publish it, to help anyone else through Anxious Attachment issues, which was my main psychological problem. Not many people have read the book, probably because it’s sad and carries with it little hope, until the end, when I finally wake up from the drama of the past and LET GO!

Trust me, as my friend from childhood did, and I just recently did, letting go is the key to a happy future. Tomorrow can hold with it anything you put your mind to, but you have to take steps to go boldly into the future. As Dr. Arleen Pitcock quoted yesterday at the Center of Spiritual Living:

“A vision without action is just a story of what might have been!”

Reflections from a Shard of Life

Can you see my heart broken from the shard you stole? Who made this beating tempest a fragile crystal? Are these shards pieces of a puzzle, glued back together indiscriminately for your next laugh? Or, can I protect this perfect, artist’s rendition and still see its reflective lessons in the brokenness of life?

One magnanimous living creature, we are. My folly is your foil. Even though, sometimes, you hold our fragile shard like pirate’s booty at the end of your zipper, mocking me as you pass your body around like small tokes in a circle. As you wear mine like a trophy, I use the remaining pieces to tether my heart, causing it to reflect more light. I’m an incomplete prism, now, like stalactites in a temple of solitude. Enlightened, I’ll use this dream like prison bars, not to keep me in, but for you to never again enter my peace. I look out from a crystalline life, settled in my spiritual purview, protected by my own brokenness.

I’ll let spirit deliver the remains to you. I offer it like shards of wisdom for free, for you to do with, learn from, or throw away. They are yours, too.

You must know, my expectation of love was mine, from the beginning. What lessons I’ve learned, on my belly, crying, screaming, inching my way toward truth, I uttered your name to God, wondering your purpose.

“Make peace from your sliver of pain,” I hear in the silence. “Time to live your life now, full and rich, alone for the viewing.”

I stand amidst chaos, looking for peace, and see you beyond my reach. Let me go! You carry me way too far into the deep. I long to paddle through the shallow end, snorkeling for beauty, taking comfort in ebbs and flows. Perhaps, you will return for your lesson—perhaps, not….

I stand taller in this end, sinking comfortably, deeper into earth’s discomfort. The life-waves not only sway and dance with me, but my toes, now like roots, steady me. Amazed by the beauty of creation—even you—playing the brilliant role of antagonist, I touch our broken shard less and less, as it becomes a grand gesture of the whole. You did your part. I must do mine—alone and off to a new journey.
