Are you getting it….YOU ARE AMAZING. Allow yourself to fee the amazing joy and love within you and let the past issues go.
So many people relive their past mistakes every day. When you talk to them all they want to tell you is how someone did them wrong, or what someone told them or an error they made. Every time I hear them talk like that I want to hug them and tell them to feel the joy and love you have right now.
The most powerful part of the power of now is feeling the present moment. You know in this very present moment there is just you and your past does not matter and the future has not come so you focus on the present moment. That is why they call it a present….
I know I have made a few mistakes and had a few really crazy things happen to me, however, I let them go and focus on the good from the past and my future. When I feel a little weak or down, I will meditate on the present moment. When I meditate on the present moment I feel my joy expand and when I come back I enjoy life that much more and do more with my life.
Don’t allow others to steal your joy. As they remind you of your past, let it go and tell them you have moved on.
There is a story I read about two monks traveling a long road. As they were traveling they came to a small river. There was no bridge and a woman was standing there crying. She told them she needs to go to the other side but don’t know how to cross over. She also said she could not swim, so would not go into the water. One of the monks told her to get on his back and he carried her across the river. She was so happy she gave him a hug and went on her way. As the two monks continued their travels they didn’t talk. Finally the one monk said, what is your issue why are you no talking. The other monk said, I cannot believe you touched that woman. You know it goes against all our teachings. The first monk turned to him and said, I put her down over an hour ago and you are still carrying her. Let it go.
Memories are to be good times and treasures. Let the rest go as you continue your journey to freedom.
Much joy and love to you and yours
