I loose the world from all I thought it was.
How weary we can make ourselves when we hang on to the worrisome thoughts from the past that never occurred. And then for good measure we add more worrisome thoughts about the future to weary ourselves all the more. There is no need to hang on to the images and the presentations of the ego from your past because it never happened. I know this is difficult for you to remember and to accept as true but I also am aware that you have begun to discover the Light within yourself that is beginning to show you the way out of hell for your mind. When you allow your split mind to attack and attack again after awhile when the pain becomes great enough what do you find yourself doing.
You find yourself retreating from the world to a place where you can spend some time undisturbed by its distractions. And you practice allowing the Light to come forth and wash your pain away. This is the gift of the miracle worker. I am so pleased with you when you practice this.
