How to Let Go of the Past and Be Happy
Just how to Let Go of the Past and Be Happy
Something inside people resonates with the question, “How can I let go of the past and be happy? ” It is really a feeling or an awareness that knows that there’s something significantly more than this world is showing us. There’s something within us that is ready to burst and to shine.
Once we’ve had a glimmer of joy, there is a sense in us of Wow, I like that glimpse. Why can’t this always be what life is? Why can’t life always be fun? And the clear answer of the Spirit is, “It’s, it may!” That is the reality, but we do need to let go of past associations and let go of the familiar in order to open our hearts around something much greater than anything we have ever experienced on Earth.
How do you reach a state of mind where you’re feeling certain that the past is finished; a course in miracles where you’re feeling that there’s nothing left from the past that may haunt you or that may bring doubt to the mind anymore? It’s through guidance and trust.
The Holy Spirit can use time and the symbols in time for you to coach you on that there’s no time. He is able to use the symbols of the past—like words and anything in form—to inspire and to bless, and to give you the experience that you will be free right now.
Whenever you really let go of the past through guidance, you’re not concerned anymore with the outcomes of the world. When you let everything be reinterpreted by the Spirit, then you can recall your darkest hours or memory with a mild smile in your mind. You can think, Wow, it looks so different now with this particular higher interpretation. God, you had been with me all of the time. You had been there in most circumstance and every seeming situation beckoning me, “Come up here with me and notice with me, come see my perspective on the world. Come start to see the gentleness, the laughter and the joy.”
This experience doesn’t affect major things only—it is each and every day! We are able to let go of the past and the familiar, learn to hear present moment guidance and be happy at this time!
