The Traveling Mind – Jina Wallwork
We exist within this moment, yet our minds can travel to any point in time. We can choose to live in the past if we allow our thoughts to reside there. Our view of the future is obscured, but our mind can connect to it based on a foundation of imagination. Our thoughts must, at some point, return to this moment. It is only through the present that change can shape our reality. We cannot alter the past. Our actions shape the future because movement occurs within this second. We travel through life while considering who we are and who we desire to be. Thinking of the past and the future assists our journey forward because we remember what we have learned. A new understanding leads to the creation of a new circumstance.
Through conscious reflection, we understand our lives by accepting the difficult challenges we have faced. If we cannot see the value of our past, then it will manifest once more within our future. If we accept the valuable nature of the lessons we have faced, we will look to the future and see change. There will be a new circumstance filled with different lessons. We are constantly moving forward, and we never cease to learn because we are constantly experiencing life.
