Is the past the guide to now?

The past is not the guide to what will happen now.

The past is exactly that and it no longer exists, apart from a memory in our minds.

As we are not our minds or the story, then what happened before is no longer relevant, unless we choose it to be.

We play the same repeating mind patterns over and over, if you identify with your mind, then the resulting action will be what the mind is telling you about your past. We become the thoughts.

If we disassociate with our thoughts, as they are simply mental forms that come and go, about 60,000 per day, then the doing now is all that is relevant. However, if we take each thought seriously, we’d be exhausted and often are, then we get the same outcome as before – it repeats.

If we stay focused on now and what we are doing now the past has no bearing and the flow from our soul and spirit comes into being and what happens is not the past. The only guide is the conscious moment, that is always the only thing that matters, and the only thing that is real. The rest is just in our minds.

Doing without the mind

When you try to do with the mind, as your thought and imagination engaged, then doubt comes. When all your energies are engaged with the future outcome, your ego steps in and we lose consciousness and are no longer in the moment, focus goes.

If you allow your mind to go silent and just go with the flow of thing you are doing, if let go of thinking about the outcome and result, you let the pressure go, your ego is no longer there, so you are not fearing failure, or ridicule or anything. The doing will flow through you and will happen without any resistance or negative thoughts.

The joy of the doing comes and what you are doing just unfolds with ease.
