The waterfall

Learn from the past live in the now.

We often get caught up in daily living and forget our mission here on earth. We all have incidents in our past that can control our future and how we deal with present day events.

When as a child we get burned by touching a hot stove, we learn to never touch a hot stove again, as a result, this becomes a self-preservation action. In most instances, this is a good thing, however, when carried to the extreme, it can have life-limiting consequences.

Many people after having been burned would never go near a stove again. The lesson to be learned is to be careful, not avoid the situation entirely. To do so would be counterproductive and not be in our best interest. Life doesn’t come with a manual, we learn as we go, taking our personal experiences along with that of others and fashioning a better life for not only ourselves but others as well.

To live a better life, we need to each learn from the past, to appreciate the past, but to live in the now. It isn’t so much a lifestyle, as a living style. We all have a past with certain events that took place we would sooner forget about.
