Persistent Past

Although what happens now occurs now, when it’s seen through the view of the past you’re not with what’s actually happening. You can’t be present for what’s actually happening when the past is being used to live now…

Living from past energy patterns isn’t something that jumps out at you, the persistent past patterns are lying in wait for the opportunity to be used. They don’t have to be glaring, nor do past energy patterns always manifest as totally destructive actions, but the past is destructive in the way it doesn’t allow you to be with what’s occurring right now; the past takes you away from truly living life now. when you use the past to live now you end up living the same life over and over, doing the same thing, getting the same results, basically it’s as if you’re stuck in a rut which only gets deeper each time the persistent past is grabbed and brought into the present. You can’t be present for the present when the past is being used to live now. Much quietness will be needed to see the persistently i’m past and how it’s used.

Persistent past energy patterns are very subtle and are deeply ingrained, noticing this is the first step in the liberation from this energy. This energy is so controlling because it’s brought into the present and blocks the ability to live now; not many truly live in the moment of what’s actually occurring. Although what occurs now happens now, if seen through the view of the past what’s actually happening now is missed. There’s so much past energy and only there’s awareness of this can the persistent past energy patterns even begin to be broken. Watch the mind and how it constantly uses the past to live now. How you can tell something is being used from the past is by the label being applied to it because when it’s all said and done, the present moment doesn’t need the persistent past to be…
