Being on the Move

Moving beyond our past failures is the only way to move ahead. What lies ahead for all of us depends on how we handle our past.

-a-c-, Funny thing...while I understand the causal principle, when I wrote these line I was actually thinking the opposite.

Even if there are causes and effects, history is made daily and we can move beyond negative effects. It is often we ourselves who can't move beyond our past failures.

Yes, it's important to understand our past. But its negative effects must not guide our present, save motivation to move beyond them. Move!

May your day be beautiful indeed.

hehe... my dear Judith, the causal principle is "mechanic", inexorable for those plane of existence where no free will is allowed [yet]. Once you add some of it, some spice, there you bloom into a countless possibilities. Still you are not free from it. you are merely allowed to put it to good use...

with love

Hehe indeed, my friend, -a-c-! I see absolutely nothing without free will. Without it we are merely automatons.
