As we contemplate the New Year, let us give tribute to the past that has brought us to where we are now.

A New Year’s Message by Paul Hourihan

The past is not fixed. It is what you think it is. As you change, your power of perceiving changes. As that changes, so will the past…. All the past is beautiful. It is God’s idea. The pain is promise of bounties to come. Suffering is necessary for growth. You cannot love unless you learn what is not love. You cannot be forgiven unless you have first forgiven others.

The past is beautiful. It has brought you to where you are now. The sacred past. Love, accept, and forgive it. Conflict is the road to Enlightenment.
