The Past! What is it? Nothing. Gone! Dismiss it. You are the past of yourself. Therefore it concerns you not as such. It only concerns you as you now are. In you, as now you exist, lies all the past. So follow the Hindumaxim11: "Regret nothing; never be sorry; and cut all doubts with the sword of spiritual knowledge." Regret is productive only of error. I care not what I was, or what any one was. I only34 look for what I am each moment. For as each moment is and at once is not, it must follow that if we think of the past we forget the present, and while we forget, the moments fly by us, making more past. Then regret nothing, not even the greatestfollies12of the your life, for they are gone, and you are to work in the present which is both past and future at once. So then, with that absolute knowledge that all your limitations are due to Karma, past or in this life, and with a firm reliance ever now upon Karma as the only judge, who will be good or bad as you make it yourself, you can stand anything that may happen and feelserene13despite the occasional despondencies which is all feel, but which the light of Truth alwaysdispels14. This verse always settles everything:
"In him who and knows that all spiritual beings are the same in kind with theSupreme15Being, what room can there be fordelusion16and what room for sorrow when he reflects upon theunity17of spirit?"
In all these inner experiences there are tides as well as in the ocean. We rise and fall. Anon the godsdescend18, and then they return to heaven. Do not think of getting them to descend, but strive to raise yourself higher on the road down which they periodically return, and in thus get nearer to them, so that you shall in fact receive their influences sooner than before.
