“How can I put the past behind me?” many people have wondered who agonize over something unfortunate that happened in their previous years.
One answer is to understand that all good flows freely and abundantly from God here and now. It did not evaporate yesterday.
Mortal mind wants to materialize our good and then decree it lost or out of our reach because of adverse material circumstances in the past. This might appear in the form of a missed job promotion, a lost financial opportunity, a valued relationship gone awry, or a loved one passing on unexpectedly. While these experiences can feel devastating to the one going through them, there is a higher spiritual sense to be gained that can pull that devastated sense up to a much higher level where material loss is replaced with spiritual gain.
For instance, with God, there are no missed job promotions. God’s economy provides endless opportunity for every conscientious worker to thrive and succeed in the work God has appointed them to do. If human sense believes there was a loss in one corner of this economy, spiritual sense will find a greater gain elsewhere. If one feels they are suffering financially today because of actions taken by them, or others, yesterday, it’s an opportunity to see riches coming directly from God that are never lost, misused, stolen or wiped out. With God, it doesn’t take time to be wealthy. Inspiration is wealth, and one is free to experience boundless inspiration today! If it feels like a loved one’s passing has left an empty hole in one’s life, it’s opportunity for that hole to fill up with love for the truth about that individual, that they are alive and well and thriving with God in Spirit. And that’s exactly what they expect you to be doing too! It’s where everyone meets, eventually, and moves ahead in eternity hand in hand. Knowing this truth dissolves selfish want to hold a child of God in matter, rather than letting that material sense of them go, and finding them in Spirit which is where they always were to begin with. The same place you’ve always been too!
Yesterday does not limit today, and today belongs to God. Live today and move on from yesterday. You’ll find a much happier path before you.
