You may feel a need to simplify your life. The question is, what part do you work on first? Well, the one that feels the most complex, of course; any aspect of existence that overwhelms you even a little. You may have the sensation that there’s something going on in a room next to the one your mind normally occupies. You’ve tried to get in through the secret entrance behind the bookshelf, but you can’t find it. Who are the voices in that room? Listen carefully—you might notice that they’re the voices of your ancestors. It’s like you’ve got a house full of them but they’re off to the side in that space you cannot access. No, you’re not going crazy—but they might drive you nuts after a while. The question you may be facing is, how do you exorcise these ghosts of the past? And how do you know they’re there if you can’t perceive them? I suggest you look for some changes in your mental or emotional system, such as an energy drain, a symptom of some kind, or a challenge you cannot explain. Here is an analogy: Let’s say you start to notice that the lights in your house are dimming, as if someone were turning on a big appliance. But it’s the middle of the night, and nobody else is awake. Because you perceive an effect, you might then use logic and discern that there’s a cause.
