As I reflect on this day, I see how often I refer to the past to make decisions about the present. Much like living through looking in the rear view mirror. What is it that I feel I can glean from this perspective? What am I afraid of in the present moment?
The answer is clear. I am afraid I will make the same mistakes that have been part of my past. In a flash, I realize that by being focused on the past, I will always repeat it.
Only by allowing the past to fade away and bringing all my attention to this moment do I experinece today in its full brilliance.
