Don't worry. Be happy.

Some people live in their past. Even more of a concern, some people are haunted by their past.

For some people their past is hard to get past. Their past holds them down, torments them, and will not let them go.

What's the answer for managing the demons that haunt us?


Forgiveness brings us to the present moment, the Holy Instant, the here and now. The Holy Instant is a dropping of all the ego illusions and a surrender, a joining with the Oneness. This is best done with awe and a laugh. It is a realization that every person is better than their worst act(s).

Our fears of future hurts keep us trapped, but if God is with you who can be against you? They can kill your body, our reputation, take your belongings and resources, take your loved ones and the people and things to which we are attached, and in the last analysis, so what? Some day you have to give them up any way. Can't take them with you as they say.

So as Bobby McFerrin sings, "Don't worry. Be happy."
