Let The Past Stay In The Past

It is important to be careful that we do not let our mind become trapped in the past, by past mistakes, past opportunities that knocked on the door but went unanswered, or by past emotions. We must learn from the past but not be chained to it. A battle lost was not brooded upon by the great generals of the past, but learned from, and those experiences helped future battles be won. If something so great as the Dao does not hold such things against us, who are we to hold them against ourselves?
