Excerpt About Memory
Fluctuations in MemoryThere is the need for a tremendous kind of trust, knowing that you are in good hands. We realize that our memory, our thought processes, our minds begin to function in ways different from what we know and expect. Usually we use our memory and mind to define who we are and what the world is. We live in the past instead of being in the now. We use old ideas to constrain what is fresh and new. The tendency of memory to freeze our experience relaxes as we live in the now. Sometimes you might experience lapses of memory, but then you realize that the now has nothing to do with time. The now contains all time, and memory is a small part of your mind.
