Change Your Past, Choose Your Future

Nov 13, 2007
Many of us believe that our past is done and over with and set in stone. We also believe that future is unknowable and free for our choosing. This is both right, and wrong, and I'll explain why.

First of all, the past is gone and never will be again. The future will always be moments ahead of us no matter what happens and we will never experience the future. The present is all we have, and it is always effected by both the past and the future.

The present is effected by the past because the decisions and situations of the past have lead to the present moment. Every decision we have ever made from the jobs we have taken to the foods we have eaten have all lead to the present moment. Everything in our past has created every aspect of our present.

The future also effects the present moment. We are constantly looking toward the future and making decisions based on where we want to go and what we want to accomplish in the future. We are always looking at that next promotion, our next career move, our next love life decision, what we plan on doing next weekend. All of these things effect and influence our decisions.

The present is an accumulation of both the past and the present, and we must learn to understand how they relate to one another in order to maximize all three. The past, present, and future are one and the same. All exist simultaneously in the present moment regardless of memories or dreams or current experiences.

See, many people think that the past is set in stone. That the past is completely gone and is what it is and can't be changed. Well, this is only partially true, and understanding where it isn't true allows you to use it to your advantage in order to change your present and your future.

The past is set in stone in that the physical actions that happened cannot be changed. However, the quantum effects of the past that have been left inside of your being can be changed, and there for, effect and change your past influences.

The same is true for the future. The future is unknown, but cannot be changed. The future is completely dependent upon the past. Your past influences, conditioning, ideas, thoughts, decisions, and a million other things dictate and decide what your future will be. Your future is set in stone, until you change the stone.

It's simple, effect your past, change your future. They go hand in hand because you cannot change one without effecting the other. Learn to effect each one in and of itself, and you can effect and change the other in order to cause it to serve you.

So what does the present have to do with anything? The present is where we experience the decisions and the residue of the past. It's the only moment we are able to get the rewards, or the punishment for past concepts, perceptions, decisions, and choices we have made.

It's also the only place where the past or the future can be effected. The future is created by the decisions, concepts, ideas, beliefs, and perceptions that we hold in the present moment. The past is changed by the choices and decisions we make in the present moment. The present is the only place we can make changes, make new decisions, take in new ideas, concepts, and beliefs.

The present is the only place and the only time we have. It must be used in order to manifest the future we want, and to change the past we have had in order to manifest that future. Use your present as effectively as possible. Use it to create the life you want to live.
