We Bypass And Search 'Out There' Because We Are Hurting 'In Here.'
This is why we do it. Not because we want to bypass. Not because we want to live in a fantasy. We do it because it's the best we have right now. So please know that everything I am about to say is true - but also if you NEED to bypass, to be in an altered state, if seeking outside yourself feels like the only thing available to you right now - there's nothing wrong with you. Use those tools as foundations that will help you process one day. THIS is the key. Make it fully safe to want to bypass and transcend. Sometimes we NEED to do that to build the foundations to do the deeper, inner work. The reality based processing.
Let yourself journey at your pace and speed. Let yourself bypass and disconnect - let yourself process how YOU NEED TO right now. Look at it as a journey not a step or a 'right or wrong.'
