Precisely. The very ties that bind us to a fixed way of being, and which can hinder or even cripple our psychological and spiritual growth, are same
lines which run through our past relationships and become reflected in our limited or constrained way of being and thinking. It is next to impossible
to break free into a new realm of domain of boundless freedom and unlimited possibility, until they are traced back to their origin, and recognized
for their limitations, at both ends, wherever possible. Then, the very ties that once bound us to a limited, constrained or fixed way of being and
relating, in the past, once undone, become our very liberation, not only for ourselves, but for the other also, and at a deeper more fundamental
level, within the very context of the relativity of human being within which we are all emersed and imbedded whether we like it or not.
Thus if a simple methodology could be developed for this mutual recognition and "re-do" from the POV of the two or more parties involved, all
accumulated negative karma or limitations and contraints on our freedom, and that of others, who in truth we love and who love us (if given the
opportunity), is then dissolved, which by its very nature will and can't not precipitate a spiritual experience at both ends of that karmic rope or
cord, at its release.
This then is the means by which we "change the past" to change the future. What an opportunity! Why would we shrink then from the task at hand, or the
heart which moves us..?
The reason for that I think resides in the powerfully reinforced reaction/response programming of all manner of learned behavioral patterns, which are
like grooves in the mind, and so this "work" of changing the past in this way, requires effort in the face of the status quo and the courage to
overcome the fear of change, and of the unknown and the uncertain, and thus most operate for the most part like programmed robots (for the most absurd
reasons) mindlessly (unconsciously) projecting the past into the future as they march along this false timeline or arrow of time that assumes we can
only move FROM the past into the future, and not relative to the future as the domain of freedom (in the imagination), to generate as we go, a whole
It's insane, where the definition of insanity is to keep on doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result.
