Living in the past means you are thinking about your betrayal, failure, anger, regrets that happened in the past and you are remembering them again and again. Watch your body, it is reacting in the same way it did when the actual event happened in the past. You are reliving your past. You are in the past.  You are missing infinite good in this present moment. Since you are not home to see them, the gifts are laying unopened!  Come home! Open your gifts, dance in gratitude, be filled with love for the Divine for She alone gives!
