Looking Back and Forward

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're going

to talk about appreciating your

past and also looking forward.

One quote I've always appreciated

even though it's a bit trite is,

"This moment is the beginning

of the rest of your life."

"This moment is the beginning

of the rest of your life."

I wasn't able to find the

original author of this quote.

And I think it's been said in

many different ways, by many

different people, but the

sentiment has always stuck with me.

And the beauty of this is that our past

is the foundation we stand on when doing

the work of being in the present moment.

You are here, now.

If we step out of clock time, this

moment is truly a new beginning,

independent of what has come before.

All you have is this moment of

wakefulness, of choosing to be here

fully, to see clearly, to listen deeply.

And it's your opportunity for

personal transformation and alignment.

Let your past be the ground you

stand on when looking toward the

next unwritten moment of your life.

This moment is the beginning

of the rest of your life.

Thank you for your practice.

Let's settle in for today's meditation.
