Cut the cord

Stare straight ahead towards the horizon. Blur your eyes.

Inhale deeply. Exhale. Continue to breathe normally throughout this visualization.

Close your eyes.

Imagine your bare feet in shallow water. This water extends in all directions around you, as far as your eyes can see. There's a red cord tied around your wrist. On its other end, it is tied to a floating deck. On the deck is that mistake you made, and the other, and those choices you regret, and your feelings of guilt, your indecision, your loveless actions, your grudges, what you have said and done that keeps you in pain, your failures, your thoughts about what has been done to you, what you have not forgiven. On the deck is everything that keeps you bitter, angry, insecure, mistrustful and fearful. Follow the cord to the deck. Look on that pile of past and forgive yourself. Only your judgment matters here. You have scissors. Cut the cord. Let the float go. Release your past. Be thankful. Turn around. Where will you go? Go.
