Letting go of the past
“The wake is the trail that a boat leaves behind. The wake cannot drive the direction of the boat…it is driven by the present moment energy being generated by the boat’s engine.” – Wayne Dyer
The wake of a boat is a great analogy for the wake of our lives.
Coincidentally, the word ‘wake’ also means ‘funeral’ which is pretty apt as well – but I digress.
The reason your life is going in this direction is not because of anything that has happened back there. Rather, it is the choices you are making in this moment that is creating your future direction of your boat.
If your thoughts are on what has always been or what is missing, then you will continue to attract more of it – although that is not what you want.
Painful as it may be, it is time to let bygones be bygones. Focus instead on the future that you want to steer your boat towards.
