39. How Your Past Shapes Your Future

Season 1, Ep. 39

Your past shapes your future, but you still have free will -- choices that take your past and work it into your dreams, plans and your way of being in the world. We can also be victims of our past if we remain unaware of the influence it wields. Listen in as host, Sharon Swing talks about this topic with Sibyl Towner and Joan Kelley working off a quote from John Monbourquette.


“THE PAST HERALDS THE FUTURE: the lines that you see in your past will guide you in discovering your mission. As you recall your personal story, you will be recounting the deep work of your soul and you will gradually become aware of inner calls often left unheeded or forgotten. To remember means to re-member or to ‘reassemble what had been dismembered or dispersed.’ Remembering or going back over your story allows you then to ‘reassemble’ into a coherent whole the pieces of the puzzle of your life: scattered memories, unfulfilled desires, abandoned projects, and so on. Bit my bit, you will grasp hints of your mission which, like the stitching on a piece of cloth, appears and then disappears throughout your story.

When you have finished reconstructing your past, you will examine your passions, your tendencies, your persistent interests, your dreams – realized or abandoned. You will then be better able to recognize your soul’s impulses and efforts as it strains to give birth to its mission.”


John Monbourguette,
