May I Never Be The Elephant Holding On

Published by kappello on



I was reading something and the person mentioned elephants, the fact that they have an amazing memory, sometimes don’t sleep for days.  Good thing? Hmmmm

No, not really because he then wondered if they were being haunted by nightmares of the past, and could not let go of what was.  It is not uncommon to hold on to that past, that memory of what the past has put us through, that indignation of it, even of our own not so wise choices.  We might up stuck and living in the past, running around trying to run from it, and we may stare at ceiling as the past and the pain of it run rings around us in our heads.  We might think of what we could have done and didn’t do, could have been and weren’t etc… etc… etc…  Memory can be a good thing, can help keep us organized, but it can also hold us hostage.  They can be like parasites with their tentacles into us that drain us, keep us from focusing on the great life we are meant to have, should have, could be having and building, which is not a good thing and not what God would want.  I hope I am never an elephant.  I hope this piece I came across and am sharing with you will help you release memories, cords, thoughts etc.. that are toxic and move on, forward to thrive, shine, prosper etc.., most of all to love, open your heart and love truly and completely and be loved that way as well.
