Time, consciousness and awareness are words that I used when writing yesterday. All three words are difficult to grasp, they are abstract, nothing that you can hold. And this is how all three also behave.
There is a saying ‘Time heals all wounds’. Of course this saying refers to emotional wounds, injuries in your heart. It is something that your best friend might say to you after a separation. In all emotional pain and distress, be it sadness because you lost someone whom you love or anger because someone cheated on you or any other very strong emotion, you feel at the beginning that this will never end. You are in this feeling, believe that you will never be able to love like this again, that you will never be happy again. Your consciousness is fully in this feeling and you are aware of every moment because each moment hurts again.
Now people say that time can heal this, others say that it only teaches you to live with this pain. Do you forget your pain because you let your consciousness move towards daily life again? I believe it is not only a matter of time. It is your decision, to let the gaps that you feel in your heart fill with love again. It is not a forgetting of pain, it is a decision for happiness and love. Maybe you will still feel that pain if you think back to this moment even after 20 years, but you will be able to look at it from another position and you will know how the story went on, how you decided to love in your life and you are now living and breathing freely in this love.
