Giving up my past

I’m living in a moment of change and needing to make many decisions about my future and having the strength to leave behind my past.

So when you feel Shiva’s heat, when the cleansing, incinerating moment comes, seize it. Give the trappings of your identity to the flames. Throw your wallet into the exploding car. Burn it up, and be renewed.

– ‘The Bonfire Of Humanity’, The Atlantic, November 2017

My ‘car’ has most definitely ‘exploded’.  What I have done was important.  The choices about ‘what was done’ are my own.  Ahead are many roads and courses.

 

This is a process that may have false starts, some dead ends, and maybe a shallow reef … but I will be renewed!
