A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

Ephesians 4 was a letter that Paul wrote to the Ephesians while he was literally sitting in a Roman prison.

How do you overcome your past mistakes? There is nothing to do about them except live in the present moment without judgement as best we can, making the best decisions we can as they present themselves in the moment we are in. After all my years of searching, this is what I discovered.
