Thought of the Day: April 04, 2018 – Past Reflections
What does past reflections mean to you?
To me, it means to look at the past and find answers for the future. It is to meditate on what can be and not just focus on what is.
How far back do you go when you reflect on the past? Do you go to your childhood, your teens or maybe a few years back?
Do you use memories or pictures to have past reflections?
Depending on your situation and the solution you are looking for, you go back as far as you need to go. You use different resources to help you so you can grow towards you goals and dreams.
Have you considered not only reflecting on your life but going back in to history and studying what others did?
How about asking someone with experience, like your parents, grandparents or a mentor for advice?
Here is a stretch for some.
If you believe in reincarnation and believe you are here for a purpose and that purpose is transcendence through enlightenment, have you ever considered what the old you, in a past life, would have done?
Like I said it is a stretch to consider.
It is believed we live the journey of life many times. SO, would it not be of value to consider what you may have done in a past life to improve that situation?
Sometimes you have to transcend space and time. There is wisdom in the past. The solutions you seek can be found, if you understand what past reflections can do for you.
