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.
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.
