When we look at our past, we can recall situations that once brought us thoughts of anxiousness, anger and resentment, that we now deal with in a more productive, peaceful and mature manner. Now, the same type of situations may occur, but thanks to our life experiences, our reactions and attitudes toward them and ourself are now more calm, positive and loving. We learned that there are better ways of dealing with these types of issues and situations. A more experienced and mature attitude has brought us a greater ability to be compassionate, peaceful and understanding. Looking back, we can see that the ability to choose peace in such situations had always been available to us. It was simply the way we looked at, reacted to and interacted with them that needed seasoning.
Today, let us better understand and appreciate what our past self has done for us. Let us realize how much we have grown because of our past self. Let us be grateful for how much wisdom we have accumulated, thanks to our past self. When we judge our past, because we have co-created it with God, we are judging God as wrong. Real peace of mind and joy cannot be achieved as long as we are constantly judging the Divine as incompetent or wrong. When we instead look at our past and past self with gratitude, this becomes a way of thanking God. Being grateful to our Source is a path to peace. When gratitude, instead of judgment, becomes our response to the past, the present moment is free to become a gift from God to us, and from us to this world.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
