Time Travelling

Have you always thought that you need tons of money and be super wealthy to able to live in different time zones whenever you choose. It is not true!

All of us can chose to live in any one of three different places and we can change our minds as often as we like, and you don’t need a car or an airplane to get you there. They are, the past, the present and the future.

If you live in past you spend your life dragging the past around with you, that’s what they call it baggage. The weight of the past slows you down and stops you moving forward. People that are living in the past will typically be those that hold a grudge and can’t forgive (two concepts that go against the Torah). They will feel anxiety or negativity when they meet people because they are still living past experiences.

Stop living in the past by practicing forgiving and letting go of negative emotions.

“Rabbi! I don’t know if I can live with this forever!” This is what I hear form people that are living in the future. When you take the next five, ten or twenty years of worry and dump it on your shoulders right now, it will paralyze you. We have no idea what we will be able to tolerate and overcome in the future as we grow day by day.

Stop living in the future by focusing on how you are going to make choices based on who you are today.

Start living in the present by using this great tool from Rabbi Zelig Pliskin’s book Marriage. We need to ask ourselves, “What can I do now to improve my marriage?” There are two important words in that phrase I and now. “I”, you have to take the responsibility to direct your life or marriage in the way that you want it to be, don’t wait for or rely on anyone else, it is up to you.

“Now”, make decisions and choices based upon the reality that you are living today. Move on from the past and don’t become weighed down with worries for the future. What is the right thing to think, say or do based on your situation and needs today.
