Asylum Walk (53)

Everyday rewiring.

Not to forget but to re-remember.

Take an invasive and unpleasant memory, one that you try to avoid because when it strikes it brings feelings of panic, depression, rage, terror. Sit or lie comfortably. Breathe deeply and slowly; become as relaxed as possible. Call the memory to mind. Do not try to change your attitude towards it. Do not try to do anything. Eat or drink something you enjoy.

Change the grounds of the encounter. The encounter will change. So, slowly, will the thing encountered.
