Past is Past

past-is-past

‘Let the past be the past’. We have heard this saying a million times but we continue to hold onto the past in our hearts and minds. Subconsciously we may believe it is valuable experience for our future. However recalling negative experiences from the past in this way has become an unwanted and damaging habit.

By bringing the past into the present we become influenced by it. Then, instead of resolving the past we build on it. Instead of recognising the mistakes we made, so as to avoid doing the same again, we fill our minds with the mistakes others made and respond based on that. In this way we carry the past into our present, and so into our future.

If we mix the past into the present, then this becomes the key that locks the intellect. It disables our ability to discern clearly, without influence.
We need to finish the past in the present moment by stepping back from the scene as soon as it happens. If within a moment we become detached then we free ourselves from influence and we will be able see the scene from a different perspective. This will allow us to then respond from a fresh and new space.

Have the power to let go and move on.

 

Om Shanti
