“When people know our personal histories they exert a certain amount of control over us. They expect us to be something that we have always been, or that we have been taught to be. If we don’t live up to their expectations they become disillusioned about us. Then we take on the guilt of disappointing those who have been such loyal sponsors of our lives.
“However, there is a simple alternative that can be put into practice in a moment of satori, or instant awakening. You can drop your personal history right now. Just drop it. To put it quite simply, if you don’t have a story, you don’t have to fit it.
“Of all the enlightened beings I have met and have read about, the one similar quality they seem to possess is that they are not in any way tied to their past. They are free because they don’t rely on the way things used to be to define their lives today.”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “Your Sacred Self”
