Happiness...

In the solitude of your room ...
You think about the past one year ...
Reflect on the most momentous events ...
Some Great .. Some Good .. Some Bad .. Some Painful .. 
You think about your past ...
You revisit the past ... not just the previous year .. but years earlier too...
You look at the tangible and intangible objects of the past ...
That gives you a glimpse of that desire or ambition or person or yearning ...
That gives you a hope of rekindling those broken ties with the deepest of your desires...
Hoping that you will get some solace from reconnecting to them ...
You ponder about the things that you thought you should have done ...
Wonder whether you should try reconnecting to the past...
Whether the past will manifest itself as the present if we try one more time...
Whether it will be all back to normal again ...
Whether it will be all simple ...
and what not !!!

But ... the most important thing that you should know is this ...
Do not ... Do not ever ... Do not ever try reconnecting to the past ...
LET IT GO !!
Break from the shackles of pain, memories, thoughts, ... in total .. the past ...
Just find and remove all the things that connect to that single memory ...
Decide once and for all to close "your door" to the past memories that haunt you ...
And not to live in the vanity or hope that there might be a knock on the door...
It will hurt to the core of your existence !
The thoughts, the memories, the desires, the yearnings ...
Will beat you down to your knees !
BUT CLOSE THE DAMN DOOR FROM YOUR SIDE !!

The moment you do that ....the moment you realize having "burnt" everything that links to the past ...
Will free you forever from the shackles of pain, hurt, suffering, sorrow...
You will rise like a new phoenix from the ashes of your past !!
Into the world which is so full of life !!
Hold on to the present and not to the past !!
For there lies happiness in all its glory !!!
