How exactly to Let Go of the Past and Be Happy
Something inside folks resonates with the question, “How can I let go of yesteryear and be happy? ” It is really a feeling or an awareness that knows that there is something more than this world is showing us. There is something within us that is ready to burst and to shine.
Once we’ve had a glimmer of joy, there is an expression in us of Wow, I like this glimpse. Why can’t this often be what life is? Why can’t life often be fun? And the answer of the Spirit is, a course in miracles “It is, it may!” That is the fact, but we do need to let go of past associations and let go of the familiar to be able to open our hearts around something much higher than anything we’ve ever experienced on Earth.
How do you reach circumstances of mind where you are feeling sure that yesteryear has ended; where you are feeling that there is nothing left from yesteryear that will haunt you or that will bring doubt to the mind anymore? It is through guidance and trust.
The Holy Spirit may use time and the symbols in time to show you that there is no time. They can use the symbols of the past—like words and anything in form—to inspire and to bless, and to supply you with the experience that you are free right now.
When you really let go of yesteryear through guidance, you are 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 gentle smile in your mind. You are able to think, Wow, it seems so different now with this particular higher interpretation. God, you had been with me most of the time. You were there in most circumstance and every seeming situation beckoning me, “Show up here with me and view it with me, come see my perspective on the world. Come begin to see the gentleness, the laughter and the joy.”
This experience doesn’t affect major things only—it’s each day! We can let go of yesteryear and the familiar, learn to hear present moment guidance and be happy at this time!
