What is the best way to not look into the past ??? How does one move forward without any pain whatsoever. A couple of things have helped me –
And my work.
Unless I am completely busy the old thoughts come rolling back. They negate all my hard work and I fall back into a hopeless pit.. Embracing midlife can be a daunting task especially when you have a special needs child. And creating a work life balance makes it harder.The tendency to work harder when under stress due to several reasons narrows the focus and short-circuits the very habits that helps me cope……
The time has come where I need to listen to my inner voice/calling and start to meditate and focus on spirituality. Life has not been easy these past few months .The quality of life has been declining and most times I am stressed and feel nervous about the future.
But I have also realized that to have a better future I should work on my present moments. Just speculating on what might happen and worrying about the unknown is getting me nowhere. All it is doing is taking away my precious PRESENT !!! It is freezing me from performing what is needed.
I need to sit relax and meditate on a plan of action for what is at stake currently and challenge myself to do my best. The rest I need to leave and not worry about as said in Bhagawad Geetha :
Maa Phaleshu Kadachana,
Maa Karma Phala Hetur Bhur
Maa Te Sangostva Akarmani”
Chapter 2, Sloka 47
Meaning -You have the right to perform your actions, but you are not entitled to the fruits of the actions.
Do not let the fruit be the purpose of your actions, and therefore you won’t be attached to not doing your duty….
CARE DEEPLY but not to the point of being blinded by love leading to inaction.
