Burning Your Past

If you feel the need to erase your past with physical destruction, you have yet to learn the true power of detachment: you're already free.

  1. And what if one needs to erase one’s past and physical destruction doesn’t seem to help? Is one still already free?

    • We cannot erase the past. That is a fact. Even if you have a hundred journals documenting every single thing that happened to you in the past 20 years, destroying those journals does absolutely nothing to the past.

      The reality is that we’re all already free. Right now. Accepting freedom — embracing it — will make us free, not a false feeling that something has been destroyed.
