I feel like I have started a book club since I have been writing all theses blogs recommending some of my favorite books.
Today I am going to let you know about another great book....
You Can Heal Your Life.....by Louse L. Hay
Letting the Past Hold You Back
Many people come to me and say they cannot enjoy today because of something that happened in the past. Because they did not do something or do it in a certain way in the past, they cannot live a full life today. Because they no longer have something they had in the past, they cannot enjoy today. Because they were hurt in the past, they will not accept love now. Because something unpleasant happened when they did something once, they are sure it ill happen again today. Because the once did something that they are sorry for, they are sure they are bad people forever. Because once someone did something to them, it is now all the other person´s fault that their life is not where they want it to be. Because they became angry over a situation in the past, they will hold on to that self-righteousness. Because of some very old experience where they were treated badly, they will never forgive and forget.
What we often refuse to realize is that holding on to the past - no matter what it was or how awful it was - is ONLY HURTING US. "They really don´t care. Usually, "they" are not even aware. We are only hurting ourselves by refusing to live in this moment to the fullest.
The past is over and done and cannot be changes. this is the only moment we can experience. Even when we lament about the past, we are experiencing our memory of it in this moment, and losing the real experience of this moment in the process.
