Such a complicated trio, aren’t they?
Well at least that’s what I thought for a very long time. Why?
Because my mind was conditioned in a certain way that I chose to adopt certain assumptions, such as “Let go of the past!”, “Stop obsessing about the future!”, “Focus only on the present moment!”
Well, if that did anything, it told me that the past was insignificant, the future is scary and the present moment is independent from any connection with other dimensions of my life.
But is this truly the case?
Let me please answer this one and tell you, no it is not!
Because we all went through hundreds of experiences in our pasts, harsh ones, joyful ones, painful ones, and the list continues.
When you deeply connect to your past, you offer yourself the gift of forgiveness, the gift of awareness to be able to look at those experiences from a place of love, a place of peace and most importantly a place of power- where you know that you are the one who decides whether your past will continue to be your future, or will you let it serve its sole purpose of paving a strong steady path to your dreams.
“Study the past if you would define the future.”
Now let’s talk about the future for a bit, I want you to be obsessed with the future! Be obsessed with your future until your future is so clear you can actually see yourself living in it, you can feel yourself living in it.
And then, engrave that image in your consciousness and go back to visit it every single day, because this image will serve as the north star leading you all the way up to living your dream life.
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt
And now, after making peace with your past and drawing a clear vision of your future, you can start living the present moment.
Because this moment will now be a celebration of liberty of freedom, of self- actualization. This moment, among many other moments will be a march towards your self-made finish line.
“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
― Gautama Buddha
