Don't look back

There is never any need to worry. 

The good law looks out for all things, and all we have to do is our duty as it comes along from day to day. 

Nothing is gained by worrying about matters and about the way people do not respond. 

In the first place you do not alter people, and in the second, by being anxious as to things, you put an occult obstacle in the way of what you want done. 

It is better to acquire a lot of what is called carelessness by the world.

But is in reality a calm reliance on the law.

And a doing of one's own duty.

Satisfied that the results must be right.

No matter what they may be.

The Past! 

What is it? 



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 Hindu maxim: 

"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 only 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 greatest follies of your life.

For they are gone.

And you are to work in the present which is both past and future at once.
