2008 Happy Pongal Wishes Spiritual Quotes

Most of the times we are slaves of the past. Although the situation has become past, we tend to think of it again and again. We are neither able to forget the past nor are we able to forgive. We continue to create the same thoughts and the same feelings again and again. Thus we find that we are just caught up in the past, and we are not able to learn from it. In order to move forward to the future, we need to free our mind of the past. If we learn from the past, with this learning we can move forward. We need to forgive and forget. We can forget only when we forgive and we can forgive only when we learn. When we take the learning from every situation, we are able to be free from being a slave of the past.

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.
