March 12--Inner Might

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.  --Henry Stanley Haskins

    Staying in the present can be a challenging practice. What we have accomplished or failed to accomplish in the past can stick to us like sand at the beach. It is likewise with worries about the future. We cannot change what lies behind us, and we have limited control over what lies before us, so expending a lot of effort in those directions isn't really useful. The present moment, doing what is the next right thing, keeps us in touch with what lies within us, our very best right now, not distracted by past efforts or future uncertainties. What we have done or may do, successful or unsuccessful, good or bad, does not ever take away the inner essence of Spirit within us.
