It is not the past, but how we choose to carry the past that affects us now. It is not what others have said or done to us. It’s how we are currently choosing to interpret their actions that affects us now. Today, let us practice taking greater personal responsibility for how we are choosing to carry our past. By doing so, we also take greater personal responsibility for how much peace or pain we end up experiencing in the now. The amount of mental and emotional anguish that you carry from your past is, after all is said and done, purely up to you to keep or let go. It is you who can choose to keep judging the past and thus hold onto its punishing weight. It is also you who can forgive the past and thus release yourself from such burdens.
Today, remind yourself that it is you, and only you, who can decide how you will choose to carry your past. Will you use your past to teach forgiveness and peace, or to continue to judge, hurt and punish yourself and others? Will you become Love’s representative on Earth and offer others compassion and understanding, or will you continue to swallow the ego’s programming and drown in its anger, resentment and despair? Will you choose to be a light and bring healing to this planet, or will you remain a part of its darkness and confusion? Thanks to free will, the final choice is always yours to make. Through judgment, you can keep yourself chained to the past and imprisoned within a mind that is asleep to its true essence and nature. Or through forgiveness, you can release the past, set yourself free, and help lead others to true freedom and peace.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
