Thank you so much for your kindness~I'd like to share something with you,
sent to me by another Theosophist friend, from NewZealand....
Sent with Love, Judy
My Dearest Friend

Afraid of the past? Now that seems like a silly concept, doesn't it? How can
one be afraid of the past when it has already happened?

Yet when one looks closely at the fears we have for the future, we see they
are often repetitions of old fears, or of things that have happened to us or
to others in the past.

What is it you fear? Do you fear losing the one you love? Do you fear losing
your job, your security?

Look back at your past and see...did you not once "lose" someone or
something you loved? Did you not feel that your security was "taken" from
you? Consequently, the fears that you hold for the future are a deep rooted
trauma that the past will repeat itself.

You may even be fearing something that happened to someone else. That also
is in the past, even if it is not directly your own.

We have all heard of self-fulfilling prophecies. As a matter of fact we live
them every day and every moment of our lives. We prophecize failure, then we
manifest it in some form, and the first words out of our mouth are "I knew
this would happen". We think we might get lost on the way to a place we have
never been, so of course we do, and we comment "I ALWAYS get lost when I go
to new places". We are creating repeat performances of our past and
fulfilling our "worst" expectations.

Conversely, when we sincerely expect to succeed, we do. Some people say that
we get what we ask for. I would say rather that we get what we expect, what
we are willing to receive, and what we think we deserve.

We can stop expecting the worst. Our lives need not be a series of reruns.
Each day can be a brand new show. You may have gone to bed feeling tired,
but after a good nights sleep, you wake up feeling refreshed.

In the same way, even though your past may have had "more than your share"
of trials and tribulations, you can let that go! So what if you felt your
mother didn't love you! So what if a previous lover left you! So what if you
failed in the past! It is all in the past!

Today is a new day, and it can be a completely new start, if we treat it
that way. Don't goad yourself into a self-fulfilling prophecy of misery.

Arise each day with the attitude that this is a brand new day, a brand new
life. It is more than turning a new page-it can be a complete new book.
Perhaps in an earlier novel of your life, you were always left with a broken

Write a new scenario for yourself. In this story, you are the
self-confident, attractive, loving, and lovable heroine (or hero). You
always get what you choose. You choose success, wonderful loving
relationships, loving friends, a fulfilling job or career, etc.

You can change your script by changing your thoughts and becoming the person
you want to be. Become the kind of person you would like around you. If you
have been crying out for love, be more loving. Never mind the meticulous
dissection of others' relationship with you to see if by any chance, they
are acting out one of your fears (rejecting you, abandoning you, lying to
you, etc.).

Change your expectations, your thoughts. Stop expecting disappointments and
let-downs at every corner. Start living each day joyously, like a child that
always expects wondrous surprises, and finds them in little things like ant
hills and blades of grass, or a smile and a kind word.

Be thankful for the good in your life. What you focus on gains importance
and expands. So focus on a joyful expression of life. Be thankful for things
we sometimes take for granted, like flowers, butterflies, sunshine, rain, a
smiling face on the street, a roof over your head, food to eat, etc.

Let the face that smiles be yours because the world is a mirror. When you
smile and put love in your heart, you see and feel it reflected all around

Don't expect the world to change first. Start with yourself. Focus on the
beauty in your life, however small you may feel it is.

Put a smile in your heart, however shaky that smile may be. Don't be afraid
of the past or of the future. Become a child again expecting that everyone
that comes to you is bringing a gift.

Look for the beauty that is to be found in everyone and everything. That is
the gift waiting for you. "Seek and ye shall find."

Make sure you are seeking what you really desire. It is there waiting for

It's up to you-the present is yours to discover.
Lovingly yours, Roy
