Untangling Past/Present/Future Journal Exercise

IMG_3816

We may find ourselves stuck in a cycle, weighed down by our past, distracted by our perceived future and not living fully in the present.

If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present. – Lao Tzu

I have found this new exercise liberating— drawing out the untanglement.  It was born out of dialogue around letting go.  The octopus image is inspired by my student Liz, who often uses the octopus in her imagery.

She practiced this new exercise yesterday, with beautiful results:
