How to live in the present fully is a challenge for almost all of us. We all have past, the old heart chamber, filled with aches and pains and suffering. In my opinion no human being can escape from suffering. Our challenge is how to live fully in the freshest chamber of our heart, not to be broken by the past suffering and live fully in the present.
In order to live in the freshest chamber of our heart, we need to let go of the past by resolving it, letting it go and learning from it.We use these past learnings as the other chambers of the heart to stay afloat and love again like a fresh start.We do not deny the past but we say good bye to it to say hello to the present. We nned to feel in order to heal.
I have gone through heart braking and heart aching experiences while going through the journey of my life. I lost my dear wife who was with me for some sixty plus years. When she passed away six years ago, I had aches and pains in my heart. I felt life empty and hollow.I found it very difficult to bear this big loss. I let my pain come mindfully and let it go without denying it, ignoring it or getting stuck with it.Going through my pain mindfully gave me strength for living more fully in the present. Mark Nepo's last statement deeply resonates with me:" Only by living in the freshest chamber of the heart can we love again and again for the first time." What a blessing! Namaste.
