Be Present and Aware | Let The Past Remain In Your Past

“In motion be like water, in stillness like a mirror, in responding like an echo. Vague and ambiguous, as if not really there! Still and quiet, like something transparent and clear! To merge with it is to form a harmony, but to try to gain something from it is to lose it.” . — #Zhuangzi

It’s time to STOP using the past to justify faulty behaviors and to instead START using the lessons to be a better version of you for yourself and for the collective.

We get so caught up in holding on to resentment from past experiences that we don’t think enough about the chain of negativity we are promoting by doing so.

When we are allowing something from our past to inspire a present negative mindset, that negative mindset influences how we respond to our surroundings which includes how we respond to other people.

By choosing to have a negative perception in the present moment, we make ourselves more susceptible to experience situations that would affect us negatively. How? Because we are transmitting a frequency from that negative perception that attracts more of those similar situations and experiences that we were already resenting from the past.

This is a basis of the Law of Attraction.

By focusing the feelings of the past into our present state of consciousness, we manifest situations that will validate those feelings to us for the present moment.

This becomes what I call a frequency loop. In other words, it becomes a cycle. This is why some people feel they can “never get a break”. They are (more than likely) unconsciously attracting what they don’t want by simply keeping their attention on what they previously didn’t like. It’s even worse when this is done consciously, because consciously we are 100% responsible for everything that “happens” to us from how we respond to life.

If you are reading this and you feel you are stuck in this frequency loop, there is good news – YOU have a CHOICE.

No, the whole world doesn’t have to know anything, so there’s no need to feel shame from admitting if you’re stuck in this loop. Only you know deep down where you are in your level of awareness and what your options are based on the available choices in each moment, it is all just a matter of self-honesty.

If you know that you are consciously projecting out faulty behaviors to innocent people, you have every available moment of Now to choose otherwise.

Yes, many of us have horribly traumatic experiences. Yes, we might feel undeserving of many situations. But you must remember that it is not life’s fault. You must remember that there are thousands and millions of people around you that also have had horrible experiences, many that you will have no idea about, they are innocent and undeserving of your faulty behavior even if you feel it is justified from previous experiences with others. Deep down, you know this.

It’s time to STOP using the past to justify faulty behaviors and to instead START using the lessons to be a better version of you for yourself and for the collective.

What serves you serves the collective, and what serves the collective serves you even more.

What I try to do at the beginning of each day is ask myself some questions.

The questions I ask myself are usually as follows:

Am I holding on to anything right now?

If so, how can I use the lesson to serve my higher purpose today?

How am I going to be of service for the collective today?

You don’t have to ask yourself the exact same questions, but it may help to have some sort of internal dialogue planning out what type of mindset you are choosing and what you hope to attract for that day.

Something I like to do in the evenings is to take a few moments and evaluate my day.

A question and statement I usually say to myself before going to sleep are as follows:

Am I holding on to anything from the day?

If so, what is the lesson to learn so that I can have a restful night?

No matter the conclusion, there is absolutely nothing else that can be done on that day, so it is imperative that you release the attachment to any situation from that day so that you can have a restful night to inspire a better tomorrow.

It’s time to STOP using the past to justify faulty behaviors and to instead START using the lessons to be a better version of you for yourself and for the collective.

What serves you serves the collective, and what serves the collective serves you even more.

What do you CHOOSE today?

This piece is an original written by me, inspired by my experiences and my Higher Self. Thank you so much for taking your time out to read this. As always, any objections, additions, criticisms or opinions are welcome to be expressed and I look forward to any commentary that you may have.

I wish you all much love and peace on your life journeys. 🙏❤️🙏

Affirmations …

The Self is always available, is always here.

There never was a time when the Self was not.

Do not make it complicated for yourself.

Simply return to what you were

by letting go of everything else.

By not reacting to the world.

By diving deep within, into the heart center

where the true reality awaits you.

You are a divine being, a spiritual being.

You are not the body or the mind.

Know yourself, be yourself!

Awaken to the Self!

Forget about reincarnation.

Reincarnation is not for you.

It is for the deluded ones.

You are free of all karma,

free of all samskaras,

free of playing games.

Feel your freedom.

All is Well.

– Robert Adams
