So many people get stuck in the muck and mire of the past. They are continually spinning in their minds through those painful days, never seeming to move beyond the pain, guilt and regret. Regardless of what our spiritual or religious beliefs may be the truth is that our past does indeed have purpose. It was neither a mistake or happened by accident. We were then and are now exactly where were are / were meant to be. The people in our lives were the necessary teachers we needed along the way. Just the same as we were for them. The situations, the experiences, the grief and the pain, all of these have been necessary for our Soul’s evolution and expansion in this our human reality.
Our past is ours and ours alone. We cannot change it. We cannot do a single thing differently. What we can do though is to embrace it, accept it and in the process heal from it. We can proudly and confidently know that we are where we are today, because of it. We can be here in this moment and today be grateful for all of it. All of it, yes even the painful and traumatic aspects of it. Today together we can stand up and say, I AM NO LONGER GOING TO BE A PRISONER OF MY PAINFUL PAST. It is done and behind me now.
Today we can breathe in the light and love that forgiveness offers. We can let go of guilt, fear and regret and move confidently forward with love, hope and peace in our hearts. Knowing that, yes indeed our past had purpose and today is the day we set our SOUL’S free.
Love, light and gratitude to all of you brave spiritual warriors who are walking the path to freedom knowing that deep within all things have had purpose. This is why we are here.
