Today I am going to ask you to face the truth. The past has no power over you. I know this runs counter to what many therapists believe but still I am going to say to you that the past is over, and only the present moment exists. Now some people choose to replay the past over and over in their minds and wonder why the same patterns keep popping up in the present. The good news is that today you can choose a different future, one that is radically more joyful than the past.
The real question is to what degree you can let go of your past? This does not mean letting go of the lessons and teachings of the past. It means letting go of the struggle of the past. The freer you are from the struggle of your past the easier it will be to step into a radically more joyful future.
