“Once lived, the past has very little value. And yet we carry its lifeless body into all future moments, allowing it to crush us with its weight, to identify us, and to speak for us. ” Don Miguel Ruiz
Puts things in perspective. Keep on living, keep on dancing, even if you think you might have screwed up along the line. In The Tale of the Two-Headed Blue Fish with Yellow Whiskers , “Don’t fix me”, the fish said emphatically, “There is nothing to fix”. If we spend all our time in an effort to fix things that are already done, we may not have enough time to devote to what really matters right now, in this present moment.
The more I detach from the past (still remembering lessons learned), and the more I concentrate on each day, the smoother things go, the more I smile, the more I can give, and probably the more I can receive.
