History Belongs to the Ego, Memory Belongs to the Soul
Our ego needs a story in order to stay alive. Our ego feeds on stories to justify our existence or our position (our need to be right). When we are stuck in our story, it is a sign that we are not learning from our life. Every time we tell a repeated story, we are being shown what we forgot to learn. Repeating a story keeps us in our history. Our history (story) is un-experienced data that is doomed to repeat itself, thus providing for us repeated circumstances that the ego uses to further justify its stuckness. Our story keeps us in yesterday and freeze frames our life, thus postponing our soul‘s purpose: to experience. When we get the message behind the events in our life, we gain knowledge and our soul’s purpose is fulfilled. The memory becomes wisdom to be contributed to the earth, to the universe and to your soul’s evolution. Remember, your soul cannot go any further than an un-experienced event.
If you are reading this today, it is time to look where you are continuing to tell the same stories over and over again. Go back in time to where this story began and ask to be given the wisdom behind the story so you can grow beyond the repeating circumstance and get on with life. Write the story down and take responsibility for the action by seeing what it taught you, no matter how horrible it might be. Keep writing until you get the A-HA! Then move on.
