Today’s episode is based on a question I received from a listener. The gist of her question was this:
“If our thoughts are not real and they’re just making up stories, then how would you explain childhood abuse? Are my thoughts and feelings not true? Is my mind just making this up?”
It’s an excellent question, right?
We live in a thought-created, survival-focused story that is a story, full of me-and-my-life implications, past and future, cause and effect, and lots of meaning.
That’s not at all the same as saying that we’re making it all up. And it’s definitely not the same as saying that we shouldn’t feel the way we do or that things could be different, which is how it’s often heard.
I hope what I share with this listener resonates with you and helps you see the oneness and the story in a more expansive way.
