“Do not seek to forget your past, seek to change your future. The worst thing you could do is forget your past. Forget your past and you forget all that it has to show you, all that it gave you as its gift. Neither pretend that it doesn’t matter. Rather, acknowledge that it does matter – and that, precisely because it does, you have decided not to repeat certain behaviors ever again.
Yet, once you have made that decision, let go of your past. Letting go of it does not mean forgetting it. It means stopping the holding on, ending the clinging to your past as if you are going to drown without it. You are drowning because of it. Stop using your past to keep you afloat in your ideas of Who You Are. Let go of these old logs and swim to a new shore.”
God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, “Friendship with God”
