Our minds are filled with a collection of data. Most of the data is called "past experiences". If we let our minds be the road map for our lives, our thoughts, reactions, and decisions will be based on the experiences of our past.
We will unknowingly re-live our childhood over and over... To break free of the past, we have to live deeper than our mind.
To live in the present moment, we can not choose yesterday's ideas. Each day must be fresh and new, aligning ourselves with wisdom and truth.
When you completely surrender your will to God and align your life with His Way, you can expect big changes to happen.
All the parts of your life that are based on fear and falseness will die away, leaving a lot of empty space. No matter how uncomfortable you feel, don't try to fill the empty space with more illusions. Let things be as they are, trusting that... one day soon a new world will open up,
one that will exceed any dreams you've had, a world of infinite possibilities...
