One of the most important reason we lose contentment and tranquility of the soul is that we feel sorrow for the past, we are angry and frustrated with the present and we fear the future.
When inflicted with a calamity, some people may remain for months or years torn between grief, regret, sorrow, and wishes. One of them would say, “I wish I did such and such”, “I wish I left such and such”, or “Had I done such and such, such and such would have happened”. These justifications and wishes only bring about more suffering. That is why psychiatrists, social advisers, and educators recommend that man should forget the pains of yesterday and live the current situations of the present, for the past never returns.
