“Life is what is happening; death is what is not happening. A moment after something happens, it is already dead. Whatever happened to us as a child, in school, with friends, in love relationships – whatever was true thirty years ago – is no longer true. Our whole personal history is dead, but we become so attached that we bring back the ghost in our mind.
We carry the memory of our whole life knowing that it is dead, that it is no longer true, and yet it affects our everyday life. It is true that the memory happened, but it’s also true that it is not happening anymore. It is gone; it isn’t real. If it was real, it’s no longer real.”
Don Miguel Ruiz, in “The Four Agreements Companion Book”
