I do not like to live in the past,
But, allow my past to live within me.
Looking back at my life,
I’ve crossed paths with so many people
who no longer permeate my days.
I’ve blamed so many …
held grudges against
-those who betrayed
-those who tortured
-those who hated
--those who loved, even trusted me!
I perceive things differently…
We meet every person for a reason
-it’s not a chance encounter.
.. perhaps to test us,
to teach us,
or to help us develop our own selves.
It is very easy to live life
blind to the signs and messages around us.
Once we begin
living in a state of awareness,
a whole new, beautiful world is revealed.
So, I thank everyone!
"You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”
