Resolve to become aware of what you’re experiencing now.
It’s rare that there is an incredible pain at this very moment.
Most suffering comes from projecting into the future or thinking sometimes rethinking about the past.
Think about it?
Right this second: how much of the pain you’re experiencing now is about the future (Will I be able to get to work on time tomorrow?) or the past (I can’t believe how stupid I looked at that presentation last week)?
Don’t you want to build a safe foundation, through increased awareness of what is going on inside and outside you, so that you can do this very difficult work?
To work through the original pain of the trauma.
In a careful, gradual way, where you maintain control over the what, how, and, importantly, when.
