Who we are today is because of our past. When we think about our past and past-self, let us recognize all the trials and tribulations that we had to go through in order to make our present-self the more self-aware being that we are today. When we look at and think of our past-self in this manner, as someone who helped us along our journey, wouldn’t gratitude begin to replace our past judgments? Isn’t our past-self worthy of our present-self’s appreciation? When we look at our past-self in this more loving, compassionate and understanding manner, then we can also look at our past in this same manner. Now we know that our past, and the experiences that it provided us, have helped lift us to a higher level of consciousness.
Today, let us practice being a bit more gentle, compassionate, forgiving and understanding with our past-self. Let us recognize that without our past self, our present-self would not be as open, self-aware, wise and compassionate. Let us also be grateful to all those who participated in our past for helping awaken us to who we truly are. The more we understand how much we have grown and matured thanks to our past, the less judgmental we will be of it, ourselves and those from it. The less judgmental we are of it, the more peace we will feel toward it. The more at peace we are with our past and those in it, the easier it will be for us to forgive all the judgments of self and others that we once held so dear. The more at peace we are, the greater beacons of peace we can become for others.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
