Because of one’s conditioning the past is held onto as if it is needed. This creates an identify formed mostly by scars of the past which show where one has been, but they don’t have to dictate where one is going.
Scars only show where one has been, they don’t have to dictate where one is going. We all have a past and there’s plenty of things that have happened that will leave some kind of trace energy pattern, but when one awakens to how this energy holds you in bondage to it, for the millisecond that this is seen it’s as though it’s a lifetime. And this is because in that millisecond, one’s entire existence becomes different. This is why it’s so important to understand the conditioning that has taken place over the years, because without this understanding it will be impossible to change the conditioning that’s creating one’s bondage. “The only way one’s life will ever change is when the conditioning that makes it so changes”
One of the greatest misgiving in the process of life is living with the scars of the past and letting them dictate the present and future. It doesn’t have to be this way, but until one stops listening to their Conditioned Mind this won’t change. This doesn’t mean those scars are to be ignored, on the contrary they need to be faced so they can be identified for what they truly are; and what are they but the trace energy patterns of things from the past that are being held onto. They only exist because of this and they’re only in control because of this. Oh how subtle the conditioning is that it prevents one from seeing that’s there’s only a past because one’s mind makes it so.
One’s Conditioned Mind creates their entire identity and attaches it to the form that exist as the body. This is influenced mostly by things outside oneself. Without this created identity the body still exist, just not in the way the Conditioned Mind creates. This is the difference in being free or being held in captivity to the scars of the past. And although the scars are there and should be used for reflective purposes, they will control one’s life as if they were a puppet on a string until the Conditioned Mind is understood for what it truly is; trace energy patterns that create attachment to the past which form scars that creates a false identity. These scars may show where one has been, but they don’t have to dictate where one is going.
