Letting Go of the Past

Letting Go of the Past

by Martin Klabunde

How do we let go of the past?

We can practice being here and now. We have nowhere else to be. We are here, so why resist the present moment? Resistance to anything will bring suffering.

The past may contain negative experiences and events that we have attached negative emotions to. The events will always remain in the past, however, we tend to bring the past emotions into the present. Leave them in the past, they are worthless in the present.

Have a conversation with the past. Ask the past what it has to teach you. Ask the past to inform you of life’s opportunities. The past is there for you, to support you, to teach you, and to allow you to grow and transform into a new being, with new messages for the world and a new way of being. If the past reminds you of your failures, your mistakes, your shortcomings and your insecurities, then forgive with a deep sense of gratitude for the opportunities to see more clearly who you are, unlimited love. You are unlimited love.

The Virtue of Forgiveness

The Virtue of Forgiveness

Forgiveness resides in Unconditional and Unlimited Love. There must be a sincere desire and pure intention to cultivate a deep dense of love, compassion, humility and gratitude

Three Levels of Forgiveness

  • Level I: Decisional Forgiveness, in which we are making a cognitive decision to forgive.
  • Level II: Emotional forgiveness, in which negative emotions, such as resentment, bitterness, hostility, hatred anger and fear are replaced with love, compassion, gratitude and humility. Emotional forgiveness provides us with the opportunity to release negative emotions.
  • Level III: Spiritual Forgiveness, in which we choose to become a servant to those we wish to forgive.

To Forgive and Forget
Do we really ever forget? If not, then forgiveness has not occurred. It is not a process of cognitively forgetting what took place, but rather a willingness to completely let go of the feelings and emotions we experienced. That is not to say that we allow ourselves to experience the same situation over and over, rather, we gain wisdom that provides us the tools to create a more positive experience in the future. 

An unwillingness to forgive implies that we are separate from each other. 

Forgive Deeply and allow Freedom for our self and others. 🙂
