I like to always borrow my lion king quotes, “You gotta put your past behind ya” what does the past really serve to you? right now today? Think only of the past if it’s rememberance gives you pleasure, otherwise there is no need to remember and regret the past. The Past is made of the ego, it’s a mind mechanism to teach us lessons, to learn forgiveness of ourselves and others but most importantly to teach us that it can be overcome into something better. When you think of the past you will feel hurt, angry, depressed, regretful, etc. this is the ego taking over. The past is illusion, it’s over, it’s gone, it doesn’t exist anymore. It’s what so many people get hung up on they get so hung up on future speak and remembering their horrible past that their mind is so concentrated on time instead of the present moment of NOW. when you really think about it past and future are nothing but illusion because you are never actually in the past or the future, you are alive today, right now. here in the present. you aren’t alive inthe past, the past is memories, the future is anxieties. the present is peace. You must forgive yourself, forgive others, move on, let go, release the thoughts that no longer serve you, RELEASE the past.
Crazy monkey always said “”Yes, the past can hurt, but the way I see it, you either run from it, or learn from it”. The more you run from your problems the more they will catch up with you, believe me i know this from experience. The more you run, the more it will just keep manifesting within your life because it still hasn’t been cleared.
You have to accept the past. accept whatever happened, realize everything happens for a reason because for that reason you are here today full of wisdom and knowledge of the lessons you have learned throughout your life. You are strong and you can do this. All it takes is courage to let go and release all the thoughts that no longer serve you. It’s like having a garage sale with your mind, if you haven’t used it within 6 weeks, it’s time for it to go. You must release.
Release and let go. Surrender into the present where you are free
much love <3
