There are things we have all said and done - or not said and done - which haunt us. We can also be particularly hung up on things which have happened … things we consider painful and wrong … which we wish had never happened. These are all occasions for regret.
We can even have regret without really knowing what that is or why. Once again, something in the past has become “stuck” and is influencing us - maybe even something long ago which happened to an ancestor in our family line.
Regret, more precisely, is the continual registering on the mental level, that something is wrong. This compounds the emotions already linked to it, which then of course feeds the reoccurrence of that conscious noticing over and over again. (This is more accurately termed a “time loop”). That whole phenomenon is telling us that something is blocking our source connection, but, however hard we try not to hang on to the past or hold something against ourselves or another, it can be very hard to change the overriding feeling that something or someone, should have been different.
Sincerity by contrast, is the back face of the coin of regret. When we deeply wish for the happiness of all beings including ourselves - because we understand that this is the full potential of every being on the planet - we are able to move on from whatever they have said or done (or not said and not done).
The past can be rewritten and in fact, it is constantly being rewritten, until we identify with something and slow down that continuous momentum. What is then required is another quality which prises us loose of the things we insist are ‘wrong’ or should change.
The track today will drive deeper that very mechanism by which we let go of the past, reconnect with sincerity, and come to know trust. There are many things wrong with this world and a lot that people do which perhaps they shouldn’t. But if we only see the dark where light also exists, we condemn our own selves to even more of exactly the same misery as what we may have already experienced. The possibility of transformation, particularly in those close to us, begins to ebb away.
This is different to forgiveness by the way. Forgiveness is a type of letting go, but often it focuses more on the other or a second party, rather than also ourselves. We have to forgive ourselves too, which is an eternal act of remembering, in utter sincerity, that anything however terrible, can be completely undone.
I am always purifying. My tracks take any personal purification deeper.
Play while you meditate, do things, lie in the bath … until all the words go in without losing awareness or falling asleep. Listen for yourself or for someone else, naming them silently within at the beginning. You can also play the recording with the sound turned down in the background, while you are busy or sleeping.
Available for listening/saving to computer only until Sat May 11, 9:30am British Summer Time. After this, please purchase from the purification tracks page:
