Don’t we love memories?
We always tend to remember old days with a bit of longing saying how happy we were back then, while in fact we might have been in a less happy state than we already are now.
It can be explained by knowing that our mind tend to suppress painful situation and thus keeping most of our memories *nice*
How beautiful was our childhood? How beautiful were school days? College days? Old house? Old Neighbourhoud? …etc
Just bringing up memories gives us a sense of happiness
I developed a trick
To feel my present moment as if it is a memory
It is so easy. Just try to project yourself to be in the future while remembering what is happening now. You’ll suddenly feel more love to your present.
There is a magic in living our past. When you can do that at your present moment, you can feel yourself disattached of the river of time of your life span and feel your spirit observing your life unfolding.
Try applying this on this post, as if your are remembering reading this as a distanced memory, and tell me what you think. Does it work for you?
