Clearing the Wreckage of the Past

posted by Guy Finley

Question: Is there any value to “clearing away” the wreckage of the past? It seems to help, yet I feel wrong in trying to correct so many wrongs that are behind me.

Answer: The wreckage of the past exists only in the thoughts of the self that keep it alive. Work to be “right” in the here and now. Come awake to the pain in rehashing regrets and you will see yourself revisiting the scene of a “crime” long past. These scenes are the nightmares created by a sleeping self and are kept alive by remaining asleep to yourself. Learn to prefer your fresh awareness of the new moment over your frustrating memory of moments gone by. Do this special kind of inner work and the healing you want will follow, which includes the healings necessary with, or in, others. This is a spiritual Law.
