The root of everything in the present lies in the past.
Where I am right now… A compilation of all my past decisions, thoughts & experiences.
To continue the present… To continue doing the same thing(s)… Equates to living in the past since I’m reliving choices made long ago.
To live fully in this moment requires I unshackle myself by questioning what I do – and why. In an attempt to find which old decisions (based on faulty, outdated logic) no longer stand.
Here… The struggle begins. Because while it’s easy to see warped logic in others, it’s hard to see in ourselves. Our minds will do anything to rationalize, justify & explain the decisions we make.
Our minds go to great ends to make us believe we are right. Which is one of the reasons why freeing ourselves from from the past is such a fight.
