Changing the past


The body of our lives is wholly subject to the tyranny of time—the hard facts cannot be undone. A missed flight cannot be unmissed; a harsh word uttered to a loved one cannot be unspoken. But the soul of these events can be changed. We can literally travel back in time to redefine the significance of what occurred.
—Yanki Tauber
There’s a practice called Teshuvah, which means “return” in Hebrew. It calls on our capacity to change a past event on a deep spiritual level. By shifting our attitude and perspective about something that happened, we can transform its energy for ourselves and others. Rather than doing this out of self-criticism, the real power of Teshuvah comes from a place of acceptance, enthusiasm and joy.
