Engaging Writing Prompt

I am writing more. Practice makes perfect! Even though This prompt was silly, it actually got a lot out of me. Got me writing and thats what really matters here! 

How would I be different if an incident from my past was erased?
There are three incidents that pop into my head when pondering the option.

  1. The first time I got into a physical fight.
  2. The first time I fell in love.
  3. Texting through my anger.

These all leave me with the biggest question.

Do I define myself by my past?

Why are we so easy to identify the “way we are” by the things that have happened to us? I certainly am not a violent person; the first time was the last. Everything that happened in those Romeo/Juliet years of high school when I fell in love has nothing to do with the thriving passionate love that I’ve found now in my Soul Mate. We are happy as can be and there is no room for any other opinions on our love but our own.

I’m still dealing with number three. And that’s because I have yet to forgive myself. Once we find forgiveness within all the past history is no longer energized by our emotions. We can be free from silly prompts and online quizzes that ask the same stupid question, “What would you erase from your past and why?” Because we understand the past and future are both happening right NOW.

From The Molskine _ End Search For Nirvana

There is no need to search for nirvana.
For we all contain this blissful truth within.
The programing of this matrix we built is the only barrier and that which I call Sin.

There is a fallacy in this search,
those questions we rehearse….

“Who Am I?”
Samsara Wandering, Wondering…
“Who I AM.”

Quiet.
Shh…

Listen to plain sight.
All that you have been missing.
No Key
For there was never a lock!
Your mind is the only block…

Search far and wide but I tell you,
There is no thing to find!

The Alchemist’s gold,

all that is,
& all that will be….

is in you,
as much as it is in me.

Know Thyself

He walked into the shadows of the night smiling for no apparent reason. It was foggy, gloomy, dismal, but still this man kept a cheerful countenance. He had no wife nor any woman who would become his bride, he didn’t have a job or home, no family, and barely ever heard his name uttered in all his life.

This man walks into the vast unknown, fearless.

With no destination and a happy heart.
