Forget the past. Let’s talk about you instead.

“The universe doesn’t care about your past. It is blind to it. The universe doesn’t care that I wore pink pants in high school. (Hey, remember Miami Vice?) The universe doesn’t care that I got in a fight with Francis Franken and lost. The universe doesn’t care about your MBA from UCLA, your drug-dealing father, or that you wet your bed in junior high. The universe simply doesn’t care. One person and one person only weaponizes past transgressions: you.” – M.J. DeMarco

Plain and simple; The Universe doesn’t do background checks.

People may judge you according to your personal history, but the Universe at large is responding to your own beliefs and actions.

What we are transcends history. Our beingness emanates from that which is beyond space and our identity can never be determined by the stories we create from within time.

To accept failure, mediocrity, and suffering as the unalterable effects of prior causes, is to become identified with a mental construct that represents only a portion of the Infinite Potential we’re capable of expressing.

You don’t have to come from a past of well-being in order to create a future of well-being, because the essence of who you are is well-being.

Let no one’s definition of you become more prominent in your thinking than the awareness you possess of your individual right to self-determination.

You define you. If you’ve failed to create a past that you’re proud of, then excercise your power to re-define what that past means for your future.

Let go of all memories which no longer serve you and resolve to actualize Tomorrow’s brightest possibilities.

Create a great day and manifest a beautiful future,

“Look with wonder at that which is before you”

“Look with wonder at that which is before you.” -Florence Scovell Shinn

For better or worse, our past is behind us. As physical realities, past events no longer exist. The only life they have is as thought patterns in the mind. Any pain or pleasure we feel is a present reality exacerbated or mitigated by the thoughts we currently hold. Our past cannot neither oppress nor liberate us. Only our present moment thoughts about the past can hold us back or propel us forward.

Our past is not who we are. It is merely a recollection of those experiences which we can use or misuse in the process of defining who we will become.

Ernest Holmes wrote: “We have the ability to initiate new chains of causation.”

A “chain of causation” is a sequence of events where that which has already occurred serves as the determining factor for that which is yet to be. When we recognize our personal identity to be a separate phenomenon from what happens to us, we sever the links in our causal chain and make way for the construction of an entirely new life track.

We can set ourselves free from the regrets and seeming restrictions imposed on us by our prior choices and previous circumstances. The fixed nature of the past is no match for a mind that is fixed upon its freedom to create a new reality.

“So let us look with wonder at that which is before us”, knowing that what lies ahead will not be the continuation of sorrow and suffering, but the deliberation creation of the revolutionary and the remarkable.
