Today's Contemplation

The past has no power to stop you from being present now.
Only your grievance about the past can do that.
And what is a grievance?
It's the baggage of old thoughts and emotion.

-- Eckhart Tolle; A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose

Sometimes the baggage is very real.

abu,

You are right; that's our problem when we live in the past and forget to get forward.
