Does anyone actually realize, how deeply hurt they are? You can be hurt, but be looking away from it so it is not fully realized. We are all hurt, but all hurt in different ways. Nobody can tell you or describe to you how you are hurt. And if you live life carrying around this hurt with you all the time, life won’t be bright, it will be dull. Because it won’t be seen through fresh eyes. Of course, because hurt manifests in different ways it ranges in severity. But I wonder how many here realize, that depersonalization is a result of our hurt?
So, how do you eliminate it? Do you make money, gain social connections, make your life on the outside more active and vibrant? Or is there something which can end, on the inside, so something new can take place? To end your past hurt, so that there is none presently either. But what does that mean? If I am hurt then what am I? Aren’t I an image, a collection of memories and accumulated experiences which is associated with an image I have about myself? And this image can be hurt. So as long as I have an image, there will inevitably be hurt. Therefore, ending hurt is also ending the self image. But don’t mistake what this image is. It’s not an idea, it’s a living and active movement inside of the mind. So can you perceive and look at it in real time, and decide to drop it so there is no more hurt?
Perhaps the true answer is both. Having no baggage will give more meaning to your daily life wouldn’t it? Therefore there is a new opportunity of living a more active life because you are full of energy. Full of energy to push yourself through life, and to be a light to yourself.
