Does the idea of that “the past is doomed to repeat itself” scare you? Many of us have unconscious thoughts about the past that aren’t too far from that idea.
We think that past experiences shape us in a permanent way, forever – or that they define “the core” of who we are as a person. Which is all great when we consciously choose that because we like it, but not so great when we see no choice but to be doomed or by our past.
But what if our relationship with the past were simply the thoughts we are choosing to have and entertain in the present? What changes then?
