Remembering

Memory is a funny thing to me. Some days I wonder, “What would life be like if I had no memory of anything in the past?” Other days I wonder, “What if I could remember my soul’s entire past?” And then there are the days where I have this bursting gratitude for each memory I have – it’s as if I’m watching the best movie.

If I lived life without memory and treated each moment with a fresh, blank perspective, I think life would be boundless – almost like a dream. You know when you’re in a dream and you have no idea where it’s going, but you also know, you can take it anywhere you wish? That’s what life would be like, an unknown space of reality and a label-less world ripe with excitement for every moment — it would be like I just arrived here over and over again.

If I could remember my soul’s entire past, this journey, this life, would be so much more clear. I’d have answers, I’d have eternal experiences to learn from, I’d know my soul’s mission and most of all – I’d know who I truly am and what this reality really is. I know this life is not forever and I know my journey started way beyond the day I was born here, but I still have so many questions. In a reality where I knew my soul’s entire history, I would have all those answers.

And on those days when I dwell in my memories and soak in their emotion, I know this journey is perfectly meant to be. I smile at all those experiences that shaped me into the person I am today. I laugh at all those days I took things way too seriously. On those days I lived close to fear, I can look back with love and compassion instead of regret because I am truly grateful for that version of me.

So, in conclusion, the answer is — of course, all. Each perspective on my memory has its paradoxes, and that’s the beauty of this life. There really are no answers, and if there are, those answers are just your beliefs. I believe living life with a few less labels would be peaceful and living life with the knowing in my bones of all my soul’s past would bring me a lot more clarity. And I believe that all my memories shaped me into the me I am today. So, to every version of the past I’ve met – thank you.

Be fearless and free – Ace

  2. A beautiful write up, Ace! Thought provoking, but sometimes I feel like offloading some bad memories, but the way you have handled the subject is superb. I fully resonate with your views. Very well done 👍 💐💐

  3. You’re right. Without memories, our life would be a blank screen. It would be like being stuck in a never-ending dream! And at times, I wish that I knew more about my soul’s past history too. Beautifully written, Ace 😃

  4. Reading this reminded of the movie “50 first dates” where she has an accident and she only remembers her life before it. She wakes up, everyday, just like she had the morning before accident. She meets a guy on one such days and falls in love but then forgets about him the next day. Its heart wrenching. For her and him. I wouldn’t wish that.

  5. Loved this post, dear Ace. I have had similar thoughts throughout my life. I feel that great soul memories are ingrained and help us make decisions when we need them, even if we don’t remember them, at times we still feel them. I love how you communicate your feelings so clearly. It’s like a breath of fresh air. You truly are awesome and amazing , my friend. ❤️❤️

  7. Interesting post! Memory is so important, because it shapes us in every moment of our lives. Every choice we make is only because of former things. And I guess our previous-life memories could be like intuition. Real talk: “There really are no answers, and if there are, those answers are just your beliefs.” We have yet to find the answers so far. Maybe one day we’ll get to ultimate truths, but as of now we’re just at place of science and faith. Brilliant post!

    • Aww thank you so much, Ben!! It does indeed shape every moment of our lives, that’s well said. So true, maybe our soul’s deepest memories are the intuition’s call…words of wisdom, my dear friend!! I think ultimate truths are only known within, nothing external will get us there. I am so truly grateful for your thoughtful read and support – means more than I can say. Thanks for always being in my corner, you inspire me 💚💙

      • You’re welcome. “Soul’s deepest memories” that’s such a cool phrase. You should do a poem on that! Yes, the power of within rather than without. But also, you can go inside/out in thinking or outside/in and you’re right it’s more powerful finding inner truth first. That’s probably the real truth. Welcome. Keep working hard! You’re doing great! 💚💙

  9. it would be like I just arrived here over and over again – this is such a rich realization and revelation to have. You truly are so aware and awake to life dear Ace. Indeed memories and moments of our life strung together make for a movie like reality. That is a great symptom of knowing how we are present in this current moment reality :)) I love how you say and agree wit you that all answers are belief and not the entire truth. When we live in question of the unknown more gets revealed to us and always in the right measure. Keep shining amazing Ace!

  10. An other excellent piece sister. Really a well thought writing. “I believe living life with a few less labels would be peaceful and living life with the knowing in my bones of all my soul’s past would bring me a lot more clarity.” This is absolutely right, if we reduce expecting everything around us to be the way we want it to be and instead embrace the beauty of nature as it is then life will be lot more happier. Memories always teach us and we should be patient enough to learn.😊😊😊Continue to grow, to be the best version of you sister. Have a great time 🤗🤗🤗😊
