“If we become totally aware, we have an extraordinary energy. This energy of awareness is freedom.” Krishnamurti
Episode 2 is about freedom—freedom from the automated patterns and reactions that govern our lives. The more we free ourselves from these patterns, the healthier we become.
I ought to talk about my childhood to give you an example of imprinted patterns. What matters most is not so much what happened to us, but the conscious efforts we make to conquer these enslaving habits that were pushed down our unconscious.
I will address the concept of the Sacred Wound from Bill Plotkin’s book, Nature and the Human Soul. Here is an excerpt.
By experientially exploring your core wound, you can render it sacred. Your wound holds a key to your destiny. By surrendering to the grief and frightful memories at the heart of the wound, no longer distancing yourself from what you uncover there, your psyche is torn open so that new questions can be asked about who you are at your roots.
