What is the burden of the past?

The Burden of the Past Can Be Really Painful!

The burden of the past is an unpleasant incident or series of incidents which had occurred in the past and which keeps stopping you whenever you intend to move towards success.

Are you aware of your past, your present and your future? Is there a future related to the past? Can you define your future?

We are all striving to move towards a future, a future which is unknown. The future is motivation enough to move ahead. We create our own career paths and goals to meet the future that we have so fondly dreamt about. But sometimes we need to look back to move ahead in life. To understand our present, we sometimes need to move back in time to recall what had transpired in our lives. We need to know about the burdens we are carrying on our shoulders till date and which is not allowing us to move ahead.

Talking about burdens, I just recall having heard a fantastic story from the lovely Zen Shorts, a book I read.

It is about the tale of two monks and a woman and is a well-known Buddhist parable. The story goes that two monks were traveling together, a senior and a junior. They came to a river with a strong current where a youthful woman was waiting, unable to cross alone. She asks the monks if they would help her across the river. Without a word and despite the sacred vow he’d taken not to touch women, the older monk picks her up, crosses, and sets her down on the other side.

The younger monk joins them across the river and is aghast that the older monk has broken his vow but says nothing. An hour passes as they travel on. Then two hours. Then three. Finally, the now quite agitated younger monk can stand it no longer: “Why did you carry that woman when we took a vow as monks, not to touch women?”

The older monk replies, “I set her down hours ago by the side of the river. Why are you still carrying her?”

The story is a reminder to not dwell on the past in a way that interferes with living in the present moment. I’m glad to have remembered it today — I’m feeling much better now.

I just hope you are not carrying any burdens on your back, because if you are then just take it off, live in the present and then think about the future. If you can take away the burden of the past, it will take away a lot of stress in your life and you could live a great and happier life again.
