Hello fellow “unassuming guru” seekers,
So many of us get stuck in the past. We drive down the highway of life looking at the rear view mirror. Little wonder we crash so often. Octavio is searching for answers (see below). Aren’t we all?
Hi Rob White,
I feel chained to my past. I made a lot of stupid mistakes. I cannot seem to escape the feeling of guilt and shame.
Any suggestions, Rob?
Thank you very much, Octavio
You are not chained to your past, Octavio. Today is not yesterday. There is no reason for you to connect them. Learn your lessons from yesterday’s miss-takes and begin your life anew.
You are not chained to the “foolish you” that you once assumed yourself to be, Octavio. You are free. Your freedom simply requires you decreeing yourself free.
The meadow was filled with weeds last season. This season wild flowers abound. The meadow let the past be the past and allowed new seeds to bring new springtime flowers. That’s my suggestion for you, Octavio
Your very recognition of the fact that you can begin your life anew at any instant you choose to – that is the recognition that will unchain you from your past. You’ve been called to make a marvelous discovery: “the past is supposed to be left in the past.” How else are you to imagine a bright new future that you’d love unfolding for you?
Blessings & Love to all of you, Rob
Ps When your past tries to masquerade as your future, remind yourself, “Today is not yesterday.”
