Everything is a story, one we've been made to believe, or one we've chosen to believe; knowing the difference is profound. These stories shape us and guide us and hold us back, whether we know it or not, whether in our best interest or not. Within these stories are the keys and wisdom needed to know who we really are, and who we aren't. Our stories reveal us, they're like missing puzzle pieces we weren't able to find before. Being mindful of the stories we tell on a constant basis are the keys to personal freedom. Maybe you want to write a book, let something go, move on, whatever it is- these truths have the potential to deepen our spiritual life and practice, and allow us to turn the wounds into scars.
