Wings Of Time

Life is about capitalizing on the passage of time.

It should be a beautiful symphony composed by meaning of the past.

It should rise to a crescendo with mindfulness of the present and magic of the future.

Unfortunately, many people are trapped in a time warp .

They relive their hurts and disappointments.

They carry emotional baggages from the past and manifest them in life.

Sadly, if they are not at peace with the past, they will never be at peace with the present.

If they cannot accept and appreciate the past, they cannot soar and succeed in the future.

Contempt of the past will eventually condemn their future.

1. Time is created for a purpose.

As I reflect on time, I am mindful that you have a past that you can never change.

However, the past does not have to shape your future.

You can decide to sink or soar as a result of the past.

Our Creator has created time so that you can bury your broken dreams in it.

You can choose to learn from and build on it.

So, why let pain and sorrow weigh on your spirit and become a burden in your life?

Why lay them bare on the journey of life and make them a part of your being? Why let them become a bondage and be a burden on your heart?

Why let a broken heart and uncompleted files hold you back from the passion of living and your dream?

It’s time to revisit some of these uncompleted stories. Stories that were left hanging at the back of time.

It’s time to craft or re-craft the remaining chapters for a beautiful life.

It’s time to close the files and let a boulder roll off your chest, a burden be released from your heart.

When you let go of the negative emotions and baggages from the past, it will free you to run farther and faster in life.

You will become lighter and your steps, quicker.

Eventually, you will take flight and soar to the stars of your dream.

2. You can close the files in the past – now.

One of the best ways to be at peace with the past is to resolve old issues and build on the resulting lessons for the best future.

One of the best ways to remove past guilt is to put to right the wrongs that have been committed.

One of the best ways to remove resentment against your offenders is to continue to forgive them.

One of the best ways to clear negative emotions is to learn how to cope with them and replace them with positive emotion.

One of the best ways to remove resentment and hatred is to replace them with love, compassion and kindness.

One of the best ways to start life anew is to clear your debt and obligation, and practice restitution.

One of the best ways to transform your life is to remove the blockages that are holding you back.

One of the best ways to be connected to the people that are important in your life is to reach out and learn how to connect with them.

One of the best ways to stop carrying an unfinished busines is to complete it and leverage on it to accomplish a higher achievement.

One of the best ways to be at peace with your life is to contribute positively to others and the environment.

3. You can learn and leverage on the past.

When I reflect on challenges of the past, I am mindful they were not random dots in our lives.

They happened for a reason.

There are meaning and significance for every experience even though you might not realise it at that point in time.

Learn to enjoin these unique experiences into an amazing tapestry of purpose, significance, and blessing.

The past will then becomes a working tool for your future.

The past will become a launching pad to help you make full use of your life and live life at its best.

Therefore, accept your past and be contented with it. Be grateful and thankful for the experiences and lessons from the past.

Learn to fall in love with unique blessing of your past so as to be grateful for the present and to create a brighter future.

When that happens, there will be a greater sense of peace, and pride and joy in your life.

4. The past can be a value-addition to your future.

The past can act like a signpost to direct your path to the future.

The past can be a powerful resource to help you find true meaning and fulfillment and help you rise to your highest calling.

The past can never be a pitfall, it can be a powerful platform to propel you to a brighter future.

How you make use of the past can influence your direction in life and its ultimate destination.

The more you remove the pain from the past, the more you can increase the gain in the future.

When you choose to turn every negative experience into a positive experience, it can become another awesome memory.

The sooner you do it, the larger will be your treasure cove of beautiful memories.

As you continue to capitalise on the ‘here and now,’ you will further expand on this treasure cove. It will inspire you to live on a higher plane in life.

In conclusion, remember it’s never too late to restart your life to become the best you and to create a desired future.

Everything that has happened in the past is preparing you for the present.

You can always redesign your life to create a worthwhile future.

But beware, everything around you may come to an end.


Time may just run out on you.

Take the first step and start closing the files. The files that have always been on your heart and mind.

Continue to do it until the files are all closed.

Yes, it’s time to close the files.



I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.

They are also meant to motivate those who are struggling in life and help them find handlers to overcome their conflicts and challenges. It is my ardent hope that we will form networks and alliances of like-minded people who will put to right many of the wrongs in our midst. Together, we will leverage on each other's resources and create a synergistic impact in making our world a better home. These articles are written as part of regular reflection about the vicissitudes of life. They are at best work in progress and at worst, grumblings, grouses, and gripings of a finite old man. I have deliberately decided NOT to delete many of the articles and pointers that I may not agree with or are outrightly wrong. This is to keep a record of how my personal ideas, beliefs, and values have evolved over time. In addition, I hope to encourage readers by letting them know that I also make mistakes and am struggling with many of the complexity and complication in life. As long as we hang on to hope and work on finding a solution, there will be light at the end of whatever tunnel we are in. I do not pretend to know everything or for that matter, anything of substance. In fact, the more I study, learn, and think about the vast wisdom and knowledge out there, the more I realised how little I know about life and the ways of life. Hence, I have always ended my article by asking readers to continue to teach me. For I, too, am a sojourner in the exploration of truth and the adventure of finding meaning, purpose, and significance for my existence. I am proud of and make no apology for being a Christian, albeit not the most exemplary one. I believe our Creator can lead and guide us to be the best that we can ever be. I bear full responsibility for the shortcoming and error in my life, including my words. The fault is entirely mine and not due to anyone else. Readers have and can exercise the power of choice. They can discard what will not work for them and adopt those that can propel them further and faster in the pursuit of better performance, outcomes, and fulfillment. If I have disappointed or hurt you in any way, form, or manner, I would like to apologise to you. Please do not hold them against me or whoever or whatever is related to me. There are much to pray about, learn, and do. And I'll work on them with a sense of urgency. I hold on to the belief that 'Anything worth doing is worth doing with passion and excellence'. I'll endeavour to live by it. Life is short. There's no dress rehearsal and neither can we turn back the clock to change the drama of life. Therefore, by the grace and power of our Creator, let's live a full life and live it to the fullest. May God bless you abundantly on the journey of life. Your online servant, Patrick Liew I hope this message will find a place in your heart. By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
