You can write the stories of your past life but you can’t change even one tiny bit of that.



So instead… Begin a new one!!!



Whether we are young or old, whether our years number a few or many, we have a past and now we are here – right now, where we are.



Life begins with birth and all of us go through various phases of life – childhood, adolescence, adult hood. During our lives we go though myriad of events, situations and countless experiences, thoughts and emotions – some good, some not so good -some memorable and some forgettable. All these things are a natural consequence of the very laws of the nature.



Life is not a ‘Constant’, it is a continuous going by, being here and moving ahead. It could be said life is in ‘flux’ or ‘perpetual motion’.



At different points of time in our lives, we are in different geographical, social, financial and psychological environments. We experience life in different ways and meet different people who themselves are subject to the same set of experiences; experience their own situations and major and minor events in their lives. No one is exempt from this.



And during those different points of our lives, different perceptions are formed, changed, modified and destroyed and new ones formed. Just like our lives, perceptions too are not constant!



Over many millennia, the concepts of good and bad, right and wrong, moral and immoral and a host of other concepts have been formed and changed.



Even the scientific concepts – (which are empirical and tested and proved to be correct at the time they were accepted, have been changed and modified and new concepts have taken their place. These are accepted as true at this point of time, but as science progresses, it’s likely we will have new concepts replacing the current ones!



If this is the state of empirical concepts which are tested and proved to be correct, imagine now the position of the human concepts of good and bad, moral and immoral, right and wrong, correct and incorrect, that are socially accepted and ‘normal’ at this point in time, but it has not always been so – and will not be in the future no doubt.



In our life we go through a host of experiences some pleasant and some not so pleasant … they are like a video or movie recording available for replay. We can watch as many times as we wish, but we cannot change even one bit of what happened in the life that has passed…



So!!!! My questions are “Why carry the burden of the past and let it interfere with the present? Why carry the memories of the past as if they are happening in the present and be disturbed by them? Why remember the past miseries and cry now?”



It’s our past and it has passed.



We can write what is past as our story but no matter how much we may like to, we can’t change even one bit of it…



But what we can do and what we do  have,  is the choice to begin a new story while we have time on our hands…



So, why carry the burden of the past and waste the present time available to us…instead start a fresh and new story and celebrate the new life and its journey.
