Our mind uses previous experiences to help us understand our current situation and possible future outcomes. The problem with this is that we often perceive our previous experiences in a negative way making it difficult to look forward to the future with a positive attitude.
What if we view all our previous experiences as just that.... an experience...a life experience in which we learn and grow from, whether there was pain or joy attached to the experience it was still an experience in which we have survived, right?
Now, lets take it a little further and say that with each experience comes growth, wisdom and another step forward on life's journey. That would mean there really is nothing ahead of us that will not be greater than that behind us as we are always moving forward even when we feel we are not.
Take a look back at your life and the experiences you had.....in the end...eventually they have probably moved you forward in some way.
So with all this in mind......we can stop worrying and trust that our spiritual pathway is one of growth and moving forward, therefore we can let go of some of those fears and go with the flow of life a little more.
