Everything you attach yourself to such as; thoughts, beliefs, habits, routines, intentions, behaviors, past traumas, events, and what you focus on, is what creates your world and keeps you there.
You need to look inward to see what you are about to create. The things you create will be real and come true. You can change it by letting go. To let go you will have to face and detach yourself from what causes you and others pain and suffering. Then replace it with what gives you more joy and happiness, your light.
