Without regret a soul moves forward,
never hanging on to past,
nostalgically or lingering from pain and loss,
all forgiven, accepted and let go,
so to not carry any connection,
and in that way live in the present moment,
without fear or propensity.
When a soul is free, it is unencumbered
by the learned biases and propensities
that attach themselves to us
out of repetitive experience and fear,
and thus influence our responses to life,
tainting our reason with illogical worry
and irrational fears that cripple.
In a mind of clarity,
free to deal with the present front on,
no impediment exists,
for this soul has changed itself
and in acceptance of past can deal with anything
placed before it,
the struggle of day to day no longer apparent.
This acceptance of self, of ability and aptitude
transforms any obstacle as just another step forward,
and knowing each one is just a lesson,
there is no struggle, no stress,
just an assurance that life is ongoing
in learning and ascension of the soul,
the human journey meant.
The assurance comes from understanding,
from the calm and pragmatic responses
to life’s undulations and varying circumstances,
that test our strength and tenacity,
each step another understanding,
another advancement in perspective
and the calm acceptance of the flow of life.
Clarity is a result of quiet consideration,
untainted vision and intuition,
rendered as a result of humility and acceptance,
the understanding that we are part of life,
its elements and processes,
and that we are filled with great potential,
limited only by our own thoughts.
