How to Let Go of the Past and Be Happy

Something inside of us resonates with the question, “Just how can I forget about yesteryear and be happy?  ” It is a feeling or an awareness that knows that there’s something significantly more than this world is showing us. There’s something within us that is able to burst and to shine.

Once we’ve had a glimmer of joy, there is a feeling in us of Wow, I that way glimpse. Why can’t this always be what life is? Why can’t life always be fun? And the clear answer of the Spirit is, “ a course in miracles It is, it could!” That’s the reality, but we do need to forget about past associations and forget about the familiar in order to open our hearts up to something much more than anything we have ever experienced on Earth.

How do you reach a state of mind where you feel sure yesteryear is over; where you feel that there’s nothing left from yesteryear that may haunt you or that may bring doubt to the mind anymore? It is through guidance and trust.

The Holy Spirit can use time and the symbols in time to educate you on that there’s no time. He can utilize the symbols of the past—like words and anything in form—to inspire and to bless, and to give you the experience that you will be free right now.

When you really forget about yesteryear through guidance, you’re not concerned anymore with the outcomes of the world. When you let everything be reinterpreted by the Spirit, then you can certainly recall your darkest hours or memory with a light smile in your mind. You can think, Wow, it looks so different now with this higher interpretation. God, you’re with me most of the time. You had been there in every circumstance and every seeming situation beckoning me, “Come up here with me and visualize it with me, come see my perspective on the world. Come start to see the gentleness, the laughter and the joy.”

This experience doesn’t apply to major things only—it’s everyday! We can forget about yesteryear and the familiar, learn to be controlled by present moment guidance and be happy right now!
