Letting Go Of Your Past

A World of Inspiration and a Little Extra!

Sometimes we spend a chunk of our lives looking back on what was. We are stuck remembering and holding onto something that is no more.

What benefit is there from spending so much time reflecting and remembering? Sometimes it seems like our mind wanders there on its own, without our consent.

Many times we judge the acts of others, How can we not judge!

My thoughts:

Can we look deeper within ourselves? Can we see that many times our judgements happen due to our
vested interest, when a personal desire goes unfulfilled? If the very same situation would had happened to someone else, then perhaps we may not have judged it the way we did. However when the mind experiences a personal loss, then it is quick to judge, have you noticed this? Many times we judge the acts of others, yet when the same act is committed by us, we are completely accepting of ourselves. This happens to the best of us – this is ego and attachment at play…Read more >>>>Many times we judge the acts of others, How can we not judge!.

Why do people label other people ? (via A World of Inspiration and a little extra!)

Why do people label other people ? Why do people label other people especially if they don’t know them to begin with ?

We all end up feeling that we need to leave a legacy.

We all end up feeling that we need to leave a legacy . It is a another basic desire to want our lives to count for something. “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; and to find the best in others; to leave the world a little bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
