Holding onto something you know you should let go of. Ask yourself this question, does this serve me a purpose to my life right now?
Looking back on the past is holding you back from what is right ahead of you. Your present, your future. Think of the past as you being in a small room without windows and the room is empty and you are locked inside. Instead of trying to find a way to get out, you remain there stuck. No shouting, no banging on the door to get out, you are just there with your thoughts consuming you. This is how holding on the past is like.
Letting go is easier said than done, we all know that. I want you to close your eyes and go back in time with the past. Think about it and imagine a hole in the ground. Picture throwing your past inside. Then appears a cement truck to close up the hole in the ground that has your past at the bottom of the pit.
Your past inside represents not clinging anymore and being able to let go. The end with the cement covering the hole is that you are able to not fall back into your thoughts. (Meaning not slip into the hole with the past) You can’t fall back because it is closed completely and you have made it all possible.
