A Red Wagon
Have no regrets, beloveds. Let them go.
There is life now, and people now. You live in a moving stream. You are moving your raft of life now. Go merrily. Do not try to backtrack. Do not try to erase or add or rewrite. If you feel you have a wrong to right, make life right right now.
Years ago you misspelled a word or used a word you wouldn’t now. It is not for you to worry about misspellings or choice of words or even actions from ago. Take care of this moment of universal time. Do this for Me, beloveds. No more attaching to errors of the past, yours or others’. All errors have already gone down the drain. has forgotten them, and so must you.
Your very recognition of error tells you that you have gone beyond. Let that be enough. Notice a fact, and then go past it. You have already gone past it. Be glad then. Do not adopt remorse. It is not a good thing to do. Remorse is an enabler of guilt. Remorse and guilt are twin brothers. They are hanger-ons. They would have you stay stuck in what you left long ago.
Once you stole jam from the jar in your mother’s cupboard. That was your consciousness then. Your awareness is different now. Be glad for that. Do not make much of what was once big and now is small. Even if you committed an egregious error, it is small now because it can only be seen from a distance. Why look back? The worse the error was, the more you have to let go of it. If you are not proud of it, then don’t keep it in front of you. If you are proud of an action from the past, make a new action to be proud of now. But, in truth, be neither proud nor sorry.
Once you had a red wagon. It served you well. Spend not time missing the red wagon and wondering what happened to it. The red wagon was a symbol of your childhood. The red wagon and your childhood had their prime. It is not now.
The same with lost loves. They were your dream come true once, or your dream not come true once. Create new love and scoop it out generously. Be the pourer of love now. That is better than all the remembered loves in the world.
And, of course, if you still carry resentments from the past, they have to be left where they were. It’s important that you leave them and have no more to do with them. If they are held to you by a thick rope, cut that rope now. Keep not a thread.
In a sense, there is no difference between resentment and remorse. Resentment is against others. Remorse is against yourself. No longer be against anything from the past. Be for now, right now, and then let go of that too because, soon enough, it is the past. Hold on to nothing. Help the past to go. Give your welcome past a fond goodbye, and kick out your unwelcome past as if it were a football.
The thing is that the past is done with you. Now you be done with the past. Undo those nails that have kept the past in place. The past is no longer integral to you. You are free from it. You have always been free from it except you thought the past was good to keep. The past is good to let go of. Let go now. What energy you will renew! Shrug off the past, beloveds. It was never yours to keep.
