Today’s Wisdom: Accepting The Past and Creating “New” in the Now

Shining Light 07We can not change who we were, but we can change who we are now and therefore who we will become. It can be a mental and emotional habit to hold on to “who and how we were” or “how it’s always been,” and it leads to believing ourselves to be stuck in a Life that we feel powerless to change. But this is only because our thoughts about Life and ourselves are stuck in and attached to the past, which means we are literally “living in the past.” But by realizing the past is just history and no longer matters, like a collection of old movies we are no longer interested in or choose to watch, we free ourselves from what has been and are able bring our Awareness to the present moment where we are truly empowered to be New and create real change.
