The past is gone…leave it behind!

Screen Shot 2013-02-26 at 4.01.25 PMThe only thing we are doing by going ‘back’ and processing old experiences is tripping ourselves up. We are actually ‘re-creating’ a past experience in the now.

What happened is past and over and here we are looking at it as though it is happening currently. We are strengthening this past experience and making it more difficult to deal with. It is like when a snowball rolls downhill — it gets larger and larger as it rolls. We are creating a vicious cycle with no end in sight.

As our difficulties and our suffering is more prevalent than happiness, that is what our ego feeds on for self-preservation.

What we pay attention to becomes our reality and our worldview. How could it not?

The only thing worthwhile to ‘work’ on is our mind. Training this ‘monkey mind’ that is like a wild child who has never been given direction or structure.

The past is gone…leave it behind.

 Love & Light!
