Healing of the past is no human ‘do over’
Have you ever wished that you could erase what you wrote, delete what you said, undo what you did, or wash away what happened? Do you tend to go over aggravating events and wrongs, letting your yesterdays haunt your todays? Though a human “do-over” isn’t possible, a fresh, spiritual perspective is. And it heals.
It’s liberating to know that the divine Mind which creates us is conscious only of what is—always and only, what is. In the eternal now of Mind, no one is stuck in the past. Thoughts from God, Mind—of what is good and pure and true—refresh and renew us at every moment.
Ruminating over yesterday serves no positive purpose, but examining yesterday in the light of one’s present spiritual perspective can be instructive, alterative, and regenerating.
