110. Not without the Past

3 0 0

When our consciousness has become a haven of illusions, our mind may have a hard time to fight the maze in our thinking. Only anchor points from our past and the innocence of our childhood might give back the core of what we are.

Even if we have bad feelings about our past, which causes a sense of alienation, it is part of our history. We have to keep in mind all its benchmarks and decisions for the future are not to be taken without consulting it.

The past becomes our second personality. It is our intrinsic safety code, irrespective of potential love-hate relationship. It may become our guardian angel and protect us from a bleak blind alley, since it knows that "we" know and we know the colors of its cards.

Experience is a tough master and knows the tricks of the trade. It teaches us how to play.

We needn't burn down all the bridges of the past, even if in our mind the town of our youth has been burnt down and has left us destructive resentments.
