Let Go of Any Painful Past Condition

posted by Guy Finley

QUESTION


What is it in me that wants to re-live painful moments from my past, and what’s it going to take for me to break through to totally present living? Is there a way to live in the present so that painful regrets over what is past will not be part of my future?


ANSWER

In order to let go of any painful past condition — so there is never again a moment where regret or sorrow is pulling us down — we must allow every movement, each unexpected event encountered, every thought and feeling — no matter its character — to have its own life. If we will attempt to view life from this new and higher understanding — that everything under the sun, from thoughts to thunder, has its own birth, life and death — then one day we will come to the relief-filled realization that the reason any part of our painful past persists is because there is something in us that won’t let it die out naturally.
If you could realize and enter into that true quality of life where there is an entirely New You every moment, it would mean that with every single heartbeat you would be free from any possible heartache that might have preceded it. In this New Life, every relationship begins for the first time over and over again. Every discouragement is over right now. Every challenge, every difficulty is shouldered only in its time and is never carried forward or looked back upon with regret.
The wondrous promise of Truth is that if you would only persist in this type of questioning about what it is within you that keeps you from living in the present, nothing in the universe can stop you from leaving the painful past behind and breaking through to a New You.

    I can identify with this understanding. We all must remember previous lessons and apply this understanding to them. It will happen in it’s own time. That was the hardest part (for me) because that is the moving through yourself part! That is the coming to terms with yourself part and realizing how precious you are and always have been part!
    The getting totally honest with yourself about yourself part!
    Share your experiences with others who cross your path and help them to understand.

    How fickle my heart and how woozy my eyes
    I struggle to find any truth in your lies
    And now my heart stumbles on things I don’t know
    This weakness I feel I must finally show

    Lend me your hand and we’ll conquer them all
    But lend me your heart and I’ll just let you fall
    Lend me your eyes I can change what you see
    But your soul you must keep, totally free
    Har har, har har, har har, har har

    Awake my soul
    Awake my soul

    How fickle my heart and how woozy my eyes
    I struggle to find any truth in your lives
    And now my heart stumbles on things I don’t know
    My weakness I feel I must finally show
    Har har, har har, har har, har har

    In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
    Where you invest your love, you invest your life
    In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
    Where you invest your love, you invest your life

    Awake my soul
    Awake my soul
    Awake my soul
    For you were made to meet your maker
    Awake my soul
    Awake my soul
    Awake my soul
    For you were made to meet your maker
    And you were made to meet your maker

Guy Finley explains that it's a dangerous path to say we are one with God, because we go into imagination that we are divine.  "I am the vine, ye are the branches." The branch exists because of the vine.  We are one with the Divine in as much that we are an expression of the Divine. [youtube]ht
