Your continual focus on the past defeats you before you even begin.
Looking in the rear view mirror to navigate your future is self defeating. With this practice, you condemn yourself to a future that mirrors your past.
Is that really what you want?
Do want more of what you’ve had, or would you love to experience something completely different and even improve the quality of your life?
You must let go of the past, good and bad, if you’re to reach a new shore and embark on a new destination for your life.
Anchoring to your self, within, brings greater satisfaction in any moment, no matter what's happening. Belonging to your self is the greatest achievement anyone can ever attain in life. No one can ever take away such an achievement. You take your 'quality' of connection to your self with you wherever you go for an eternity.
What do you choose?
Peace can only be found in this moment. The power of your choice is now. What do you choose?
Can you live your life in the now without fantasies and stories about the past, or the future? This moment is the only reality there is. The present now is forever slipping into the next moment. Providing you with a stream of consciousness that is your life, unending and eternal.
You can allow yourself to become unchained from he past, or future, and truly be alive in the moment. It requires great trust in the unknown, the great mystery, leading us all home to ever deepen with your self in the now.
Can you allow yourself to be fully alive in the now?
Can you allow yourself to become unmoored from a linear sense of time? Are you able to let go of past and future and just be fully alive in the now?
Artists and creators understand intuitively of what I speak. Losing yourself in the moment is to really find yourself awake and alive to life’s impulse taking you where it will. You respond by listening deeply to the guiding streams of consciousness, making choices in the now that draw you closer to life itself.
When you live in the now, life loses its sense of fragmentation. There are no divisions, or separation from the flow of life. Only the stream of consciousness (life) is real, nothing else.
Anything is possible
Experiencing the power of choice in the now, you become whole and innocent as a newborn child. When you live from the now, creativity becomes so flexible that anything is possible.
When you hold onto and become attached to the past, you not only doom yourself to repeating the same recurring themes you’ve experienced. In this sad state of affairs you condemn yourself to continue experiencing ever more expansion of grievances, disappointments, fears and worries into your future, perhaps, mixed with fleeting moments of happiness. It becomes an out of control spiral if you let it. The power of choice is yours now.
Your future self can become ever more mired and stuck in a past of repeating patterns that leaves you feeling ever more discontent and unfulfilled.
Is that truly the life experience you want for yourself?
Have you ever truly considered that just ‘maybe’ only love is real? And, that love can only be experienced in this instantaneous moment of now. Well, if you haven’t I’m asking you to do yourself a favor and take a moment to ponder this thought, “Only love is real.” Just sit with that for a few moments. Allow yourself to soak up the truth of that thought. How does it feel?
What if the pervasive quality of consciousness is love. Another way to say it is ‘absolute goodness.’ Nothing wicked can ever dwell in the presence of ‘absolute goodness.’ Another word for this ‘absolute goodness’ is truth, light and peace.
Honestly, as I’ve pondered these attributes of Divine consciousness I’ve come to understand that this indescribable ‘absolute goodness’ cannot know anything, but itself. It’s light of love and truth is so complete that all darkness is completely obliterated in its presence. Absolute goodness does not and cannot know darkness. It this state of 'absolute goodness' it does not exist.
Try it and see for yourself!
This is the ‘light of the world’ which we all need to witness at this time. An epiphany of how everything and everyone is connected can hasten the evolution of consciousness awakening worldwide.
The darkness that is being purged now on planet earth is because the light is increasing in its intensity. Its very high voltage and nothing can resist its ultimate realization. Life will always have its way. Best align and serve the 'absolute goodness' that’s set to reveal itself.
See goodness and you will experience goodness. Holding onto the past will not bring you what you want, or the peace of mind we all long for.
When you get to a place where you see and understand that the past weighs you down and keeps you from experiencing the goodness that life has to offer then you will begin to open to forgiving everything and everyone (past and future) and loving completely now, just as it is. Only this sets you free and results in your total happiness. You become free as a bird in this instant.
Contemplate each of these questions and then give your honest answer to each of them.
- What keeps you unfree in your life?
- Are you holding onto any old grievances, or anger towards anything, or anyone?
- Do you offer to help others?
- Have you ever held your love hostage?
- Do you have transactional relationships?
- Is there anything you would like to let go of?
The road to experiencing your own goodness and peace is found through helping others. The power of choice is now.
