Healing vs Stagnation

February 19, 2013 , , , ,

There is a tendency to avoid truth and maintain status quo in an effort to stay in control.  This habitual use of the lowest common denominator to define reality is detrimental to wellbeing.  Bernie Seigal notes in the above video that to forget is to get something for yourself.  To forgive is to give something to another.  The gift that everyone has to give is responsibility.  We have selective memories and stories that we tell about ourselves and our circumstances. The story about the wound is the one that keeps the wound alive, whatever it may be.

Woundology is the currency exchange that places value on damage.  The currency of pain only has value if you accept it and give it. Carolyn Myss coined the phrase and noticed a growth of the epidemic.  Her work as a medical intuitive has been to explain and teach Why People Don’t Heal.  I believe that there is a codependent heath and fitness industry that feeds the insecurity and pain as a way to make a living.  I have seen this in action, although I do not think the participants had awareness of their folly.  If your health and fitness story is not a clean, clear and happy one, the good news is that you can change it.  Change your story by refusing to allow the past to define your present.  Trade in the wounds for a brand new set of possibilities.

You are right Elzbieta. The attitude does invade the entire life, and is worth changing.
