Man leave the past in the past. That’s where it belongs. The trouble with addicts is that they carry bad memories around with them – like old luggage. And in that luggage that’s where they carry their blueprint for living. You got to decide what’s worth keeping, and then set the rest of it on the curb for the garbage.
The past is important because it builds the foundation where future blossoms. But we can’t stick to a seed as it is essential to grow the former in a plant. We should, must and have to focus on the present. Why ? Because that’s what in our manipulative control. As it’s written in Bhagwad Gita “you have the right to work only. But you are not entitled to the fruits of action”
One said “it is true that in love and wars, worlds collide and hearts get broken.”It means that every single piece of violence lead to a consequence whether today or some other time. Then he said “I wanna live like I know I’m dying, raise up my cross, don’t be afraid”. This line is agreed by me but it’s not the right kind of action that should be taken to change the world because in the words of Mahatma Gandhi “An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind” is the right kind of way to change.
It doesn’t always have to be pain to change or revolutionize anything, it can be done softly and loveably like it should always be.
A few hundred years ago, the Spanish came to conquer Brazil with gunshots and massacre all over. What was the result ? Every single Spaniard was killed by the Brazilian natives. Then, came the Portuguese with gifts and money, all the things that the natives can’t get by their own, that’s why people of Brazil speak Portuguese. But right now, in this world, the situation isn’t of conquering anything or anyone, it’s about being together and moving ahead, like it always has been but we never got it.
It takes courage to let go the familiar past and embrace the future
