Blog-Buddy DAVID B. was inspired to write this article by some back-and-forth comments about free will here. He is sharing this guest post.
A lengthier version appears at his wonderful blog, as he explores various ways that the very sense of self changes with higher states of consciousness after crossing the threshold into Enlightenment.
At this blog, our focus is more about human life, success and personal development. I content myself with helping members of this blog community to move forward on a personal path to Enlightenment, sometimes helping people to cross that threshold.
So when your comments are invited below, they could be about how Enlightenment has altered your relationship to the past. Or you might be more interested in how the impact of your memories has changed. Might removal of STUFF have something to do with that?
One way or another, are unpleasant memories as sticky now? Do they drive you as much?
Okay, now it’s David’s turn to get you thinking and making connections. Maybe even some Aha!s that you will remember for years to come. 😉
Our relationship with memories changes as we grow.
Just consider NOW something that you remember from when you were about eight years old.
