The choices we make all have consequences and they lead us to a unique path each time, some paths are not what we want. It is again another choice as to how we react.
We can choose to accept that the outcome is what it is, we gain a new experience from the outcome and we make a new choice and move on. Everything happens in the now, and what we do now is the only thing that can change our real conscious existence.
Alternatively, we can analyse everything, deny the outcome, react, feel emotions, pain and suffering within and take that forward and manifest further choices that will inevitably lead to the same outcomes again and again. This is what living in the past does, we analyse, we blame, we look for revenge, we resist, we suffer and then we project it all into the future as our guide and suffer fear and pain. It becomes a repeating pattern.
Letting go and accepting our choices and not making a judgement or evaluation brings us inner peace and then from our consciousness we manifest a new choice from a position of peace and not from the fear of the mind.
