Like most people I have spent a great deal of time mourning and bemoaning the past. What could I have done differently and all that hindsight perfect awareness. So easy but not while you are living it. I have made a deeply conscious commitment to extricating myself from those tentacles of the past and the almost brutal condemnation that reminds me of how some early religious folk used to wear hair shirts and beat themselves with whips.
Briefly I can stand in the present and breathe and know that whatever I want is right here now, what do I want?
So, of course, this little quote came my way from Abraham this morning; apropos:
“There is nothing for you to go back and live over, or fix, or feel regret about now. Every part of your life has unfolded just right. And so, knowing all that you know from where you now stand, what do you want? Go forth in joy.” -Abraham Hicks1 comment
