The biggest question is can we accept the past and surrender to the present? Intellectually, we might be ready to say “I’m ready to do it.” In the realm of experience, this can be quite challenging to do regardless of having patchy and momentary peace, especially, during meditation. In my understanding, there is no true answer, neither yes nor no. This is only my understanding. Don’t quote me.
The one thing we can do is keep practicing the acceptance and surrender. We’ll keep getting better and better at it. Our unhealthy attachment and grasping will become less as time goes by, if they don’t wear out completely. My invitation to you is not be a saint, but to keep evolving as a human being. Where we start this practice is right now
