Completing the Past
Don’t anguish about past lives.
Don’t keep re-living past experiences.
Attachment to the past limits your ability
to be fully present in the moment.
If repressed memories come up,
acknowledge them and integrate them.
Do this not to empower the past, but to complete it,
so that you can be present now.
Let go of anything that distracts you
from your immediate communion with life.
