“Do not stumble on what’s behind you.”
The 3 am guilt, you know, when you lie in bed awake and replay all those things you didn't do right? Because, as we all know, nothing solves insomnia like a nice warm glass of regret, depression, and self-loathing. In your bed at 3 AM you’re not thinking about a party that you went to last night you’re not thinking about what you are going to do in the office the next day but what you’re thinking about is this one thing that you could have done about a year ago and you didn’t. Just this one thing that could have brought this unimaginable change into your life.
Walking down the block as you see people pass you by, smiling and chatting about their apparently interesting lives, you have about a million regrets in your heart regarding your job thinking that “I could have done better”. It’s never a pleasant feeling, one moment everything seems figured out and the next minute a regret from the bottom of your heart hits you like a boulder.
These thoughts can be daunting sometimes.
Emotions make a big part of our existence.
Chronic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment.
Meditation holds the key to self-forgiveness and self-love.
Meditation is not just a morning self-care routine, it’s a practice of rejuvenation of your mind and soul. As you inhale and exhale you let yourself become a new person, and you become one with the positive energy that surrounds you. You let go of what’s anchoring you to the past. Meditation sets you free.
Our minds have the power to eliminate every negative emotion from within us and all we need to do is to find a quiet place, sit in a comfortable position and give our minds the time to heal us and to heal ourselves from any negative impact from past memory or an experience.
Releasing guilt is like removing a huge weight from your shoulders. Guilt is released through the empowering thought of love and respect for yourself and through meditation, you enrich yourself with thoughts of self-love.
