Break the chain…
Hurt people hurt people.
That’s how pain patterns
get passed on, generation
after generation. Break the chain
today. Meet anger with
sympathy, contempt with
compassion, cruelty with
kindness. Greet grimaces
with smiles. Forgive and
forget about finding fault.
Love is the weapon of the
We are all shaped by our past experiences.
Our childhood has such an impact on us because those who were more powerful had control over us.
They enforced their thoughts and rules upon us whether they were fair to us or not.
- They sometimes got angry and we were their target.
- They sometimes got mean and we were their target.
- They sometimes got cruel and we were their target.
In other words, they weren’t perfect at all.
They passed on the things that their parents and authority figures taught them.
They felt that they were in control and that they were responsible for you and your actions.
So they did the same things that others had done to them. Perhaps they even added a little more enforcement to make sure that you would remember the “lesson”.
It takes looking at the past with new eyes of understanding to see what they may have intended for us.
To see that they were faulted and frail, human and hurt, themselves.
So they did the best they could at the time, and the fact that we ended up with less than a completely loving, enlightened parent was just a result of their past.
And that doesn’t justify the way we were treated, it doesn’t undo the hurt we felt.
It doesn’t justify unfair behavior at all.
But it does give us new choices as we learn to understand the position they were in at the time.
That we have the option of letting the past go and living a better feeling life
~ right now ~
Of thinking about what we can do to treat others better in our life.
Of thinking about how we can treat others better every day.
Of thinking about why we want to treat others better in our life.
Breaking the chain of the past pain patterns.
Replacing the old way of thinking and doing
with new ways of expressing Sympathy and Compassion,
Kindness and Love.
Letting LOVE be the weapon of the future.
Replacing old patterns with new ones.
Ones that serve you and allow you to forget the past and everything bad that has happened to you
and live with peace, harmony and freedom today.
