Have you shackled yourself to the past and made yourself a prisoner of your future karma? If you are harbouring anger, grudges, jealousy, vengeance, and housing hate in your heart; then the answer is a resounding Yes! Do not despair, however, because you have the key to free yourself of the karma that keeps you chained to the person or thing you despise- the key to your freedom is forgiveness.

History doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes. Currently, the USA and the Roman Empire show interesting historical rhymes.

Drop back into some of your own childhood memories, and you’ll see that you were practising mindfulness as well. Remember lying stretched out on the lawn on a warm summer day? Remember noticing how each slow, deep breath drew in smells of cut grass and the delicate perfume of flowers? Remember how you had the knack to pick up on the faintest sounds, such as the drone of a bee in the foliage, the crinkle of each blade of grass under your feet, or a mower being used in the distance?
