Many people come to me and say they cannot enjoy today because of something that happened in the past. Because they did not do something or do it in a certain way in the past, they cannot live a full life today… Because they no longer have something they had in the past, they cannot enjoy today… Because they were hurt in the past, they will not accept love now… Because of some very old experience where they were treated badly, they will never forgive and forget…
The past is over and done and cannot be changed. Holding on to the past, no matter what it was or how awful it was, is ONLY HURTING US. We are only hurting ourselves by refusing to live in this moment to the fullest. This is the only moment we can experience.
Let us now clean up the past in our minds. Release the emotional attachment to it. Allow the memories to be just memories. As we let go, we become free to use all of our mental power to enjoy this moment and to create a great future.
