Forget Your Past? Think Again….

To forget our past is totally impossible for a human being to do, period. What to do then? Read on.

From the highest professionals to your closest relatives & friends, the chant goes on, “Forget your past!” Understood by most to mean to keep your past a secret, don’t mention it, forget it, the past is past let it stay there! Really?
Most of my life I did everything but to stand on my head to forget my sordid past to no avail. Why? Because, to forget our past is totally impossible for a human being to do, period.
What happens to the ones that follow the predominant tendency and belief that we are to forget our past?
Either that one becomes arrogant and conceited, or, that one lives with the tacit fear that his secret past may come to haunt him/her at the most critical time of that individual’s life, period.
Is there a solution for this very real dilemma in the human’s life? .
Simply, submit your will, mind & emotions to the Almighty Creator of our beings and He will give you the power of love from on high to confess your faults one to another in order to live and overcome your sordid past.
Thus, one is empowered to live an overcoming life, rather than to stagnate in a life of conceit or cringing fear of man by adhering to the predominant tendency & belief that we are to forget our sordid pasts.
Guess what? It’s very easy to come up with this conclusion and mouth it off to the one behind us but, such simple solution is not that simple for any human being. Why?
Because the human being do not like ‘simple’. The human being thrives in ‘complicated’! Go figure it! By the process of my complicated life, I already figure it out!
In hind sight, listen to this exchange between mother & child to give you an idea of what is happening in your life.

The frustrated child after a complicated life of failure comes to mother, “What works, mother? What works?”
Calmly the mother responds, “You must change your ways, my child, you must turn to our Maker and confess your faults.”
HOW, MOTHER, HOW? The mother says, “Just tell our Maker that you are sorry.” “OKAY! I AM SORRY! YOU SEE? IT DOES NOT WORK!

What’s a mother to do other than to watch the head of her beloved child bounce up and down as he suffers one blow after another blow under the mighty hand of judgement?

Father, whatever is in Your plan for me, I am ready and willing to go or to stay, to do or not to do whatever You have in mind for me to be.
I only ask for a double dose of Your love to survive the taunting from the enemy’s ground. You see what goes on in this oppressed and pitiful environment. It is enough to drive an angel crazy!

I thank You my Father, for You have delivered me once again from a wrong attitude towards Ahmad and his ways.
Whether Ahmad willfully acts or not towards me, my attitude of trust in You must prevail. Of course, my reaction as a human being is inevitable, thus You are removing and empowering me to leave Ahmad to his own devices.
For in the new setup, my human reaction will cease enough to make Ahmad reconsider his ways. I sense that You are orchestrating all these matters. Thus these taunts from the enemy, are part of Your orchestrating.
As it turned out, yesterday, You helped my attitude change by the inclusion of the family in the meetings between Ahmad & I.
Next thing, I experienced much joy watching the whole family engaged in the preparation of fresh olives for consumption, quite an interesting affair.
My hope was restored. Again my spirit returned into Your blessed rest. I slept for several hours. Then I woke up. I began to check my inbox. An awesome comment from Vincent. Needless to say, that precious comment availed me as the torrent of expletives was spewed out in my face later on that 7th day of rest.
Next Post?

His love in my heart for all, thia/Basilia

I'm an inspirational writer—in the daily journal of my life lived in the Presence of the Almighty Creator of our beings I write about Truth & Life: eternal as well as temporal life. I am not into any kind of religion, crusade, group or the likes at all! For no one can find Truth or Life eternal in such way. So I am blogging this matter in the journal of my life for all to see the reflection of both lives as I record the daily interchange between my Maker & I.

    1. Glria? I posted this a while back, how come just now I am reading your beautiful comment on it? Maybe the time zones syndrome. My problem as well, for I am a USA citizen but, at present I am visiting Jordan, time? A problem, I never whether is night or day? lol Thanks for your beautiful comment. 🙂
      From my heart to your heart, thia/Basilia

      1. Haha! I’m a USA citizen as well, living in India (still don’t know about time though :3) . The thing is I’m really stuck up with school work and stuff so I barely have been able to keep up with word press. Soon enough I’ll be back. Great to know you! And it was my pleasure 😀
        From my heart to your heart, Gloria/Ashima

  1. Great! In the same pickle myself. Can’t keep up with anything and I can’t blame on my age–I ain’t that old! I can’t blame it on school, I ain’t that young! Let it be. This too, shall pass. lol 🙂

    You tell it like it is, why is it that the human mind doesn’t want to hear it like it is? There was a story about a young fellow going to counselors while he was in high school, he blamed everything on his mother and father, they were the cause of all the troubles he was finding himself in.If that counselor would’ve been an honest person he should have asked the boy, “did you ever consider that maybe your mom is okay and dad is okay, and your just a little ass hole?” I don’t suppose I would have been a very good counselor.

    I’m 75 years old tomorrow and I have found out one thing on my life walk, life is exactly what you make of it. If you trust in the Lord he will help you over the rough spots and bless you more each day.

    You are living in Jordan? Very close to the latest world violence. Bless you and stay safe.
    I will return to your blog site for my educational reading.

    1. O but what a blessing you are! And you only 75? Well, I been telling everybody that I am 77 when in reality I am only 76, think senility done got a hold on me? Nay! No such luck. Sometimes, with all the muck in this world, I wish my mind will take some rest but, Father always foils my dumb wishes. Let it be. Father knows best!
      BTW You said you’ll return for your educational reading? Nay! Just come for the joy of finding the treasure that Father is holding in my heart for you! I am fixing to post a dandy of a post, check it out in a few minutes. 🙂
