You are, who you are today, because of your past. Today, when we think about our past and past-self, let us recognize, all the trials and tribulations that he or she had to go through, in order to make our present-self, the more self-aware and compassionate being that he or she is today. When you begin to look at and think of your past-self in this manner, as just a brother or sister, who helped you all along your journey, would you not start to look upon him or her with gratitude instead of judgment? When you look at your past-self in this more loving, compassionate and understanding manner, then you will begin to also look at your past this way, for now you know, that it was because of it and the experiences and interactions that it provided, that has lifted you to this higher level of consciousness.
Today, let us practice being a bit more gentle, compassionate, forgiving and understanding, towards our past-self, for without him or her, our present-self would not be as open, self-aware and compassionate. Today, let us also be grateful to our past, and to all those who allow us, through their participation in our life, the opportunities to share and thus increase our levels of self-awareness, compassion, peace and understanding. 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 who were a part of it. The more at peace we are with our past and those in it, the easier it will be for us to forgive and let go of all those misperceptions of self and others that once cause us so much suffering and pain.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
