Let Go of the Past

This Higher Awareness message really struck home for me. Within the last couple of years there have been major life changes within my circle of friends.
It's the cycle of life...

I do believe that things happen for a reason and I always add that I don't necessarily always like/approve of the "delivery method". Our experiences make us stronger in the long run....I "high-five" the bloggers that are open and honest about the things that are happening {or happened} in their lives that may not be particularly "happy".

This card is an oldie...I'm pretty sure that I posted it earlier on, when I started my blog, but it ties into my dealio today. I really *love* Stampin' Up's Edgy Eloquence set!

Let go of the past

"Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time."
-- Asha Tyson

No regrets. As we become more aware, we begin to realize that there’s a purpose to everything that happens. This builds our trust, and supports us in being willing to be more open and daring to really experience life as it unfolds.

If we pay attention to what’s happening in each moment, we will discover that life continually brings us opportunities to heal our past wounds. When a painful memory surfaces, we can take the time to feel it fully, give compassion to ourselves and any others and allow the energy to release. As we deal with the past in this way IN THE PRESENT, we free ourselves to more fully connect with life.

"The next message you need is right where you are."
-- Ram Dass
