looking back (2)

There is a certain kind of despair that sets in when we believe things were better back then. When we’re stuck back there. When we’re not fully present. When we’re still holding on to how things were, are arms aren’t free to embrace today.

The answer is to be so fully present here and now, that you don’t miss a thing in this day.

Let go, and receive a new spirit. So may you accept the past for what it is. May you celebrate what needs to be celebrated and grieve what needs to be grieved. And then may you receive from God a new spirit, one for here, now, today.

– Rob Bell, ‘Today’ Nooma Video
