Dwelling on the Past

"Bhagavan never encouraged people who came and started to confess their sins. He would not allow them to continue but shut them up by telling them not to dwell on the past but to find out who they were now in the present. The point was not the act but attachment to it that mattered. Dwelling on it in retrospect was the worst thing they could possibly do. This itself was attachment."

~ Sadhu Arunachala (Major Chadwick), A Sadhu's Reminiscences
