I have been looking back through some things I wrote in the early 2000’s. This was before becoming Shakti Durga, and after retiring from law to be a full time spiritual teacher. And I have been amazed at the subtle differences in how I thought then, compared to how I think now. The difference is in the small things, in nuances such as choice of words, or how to express a concept.
When I read back now, it seems clunky and heavy, even though at the time it was perfectly acceptable and managed to convey what I meant. When we are changing spiritually, it is useful to have some kind of evidence like this from the past, which shows us just how much we have changed. This is why journaling is so good. It is motivating to realize how different we are. And if so much could change in the last 10 years, what is going to happen in the next 10 years? I look forward to the further unfolding of consciousness, which is always so fascinating, even when it isn’t always fun spitting out the old ‘poison’ of dullness and unknowing. It is so worth it!
Om Shanti, Shakti Durga
