According to Aristotle, memory is the scribe of the soul. Our memories are a composition of where we have been, what we have done, the things that we have accomplished, our desires, the things that we are still to accomplish and ultimately who we truly are.
The mind is a universe and one of the greatest computers or storage units of events in the world. We are also each our own neuro linguistic programmers and organizers of our own storage units. According to Richard Bandler and John Grinder in their approach to personal development and psychotherapy, there is a connection between the neurological process of the mind and behavioral patterns learnt through experience. Every simple thought however true or brilliant can be blown out of proportion. Every school of thought, also has its critics and the NLP approach to personal development is no exception.
What is true is that our experiences in life can determine how we feel on any given day and that those experiences can become a very regular pattern. Our experiences can promote our personal development or they can inhibit them. They can make us feel positive or they can make us feel negative. Now Imagine if you could shape all your experiences to create a powerful positive neurological process to the mind . I think you would find a fearless and very confident mind. I think you would find someone very phenomenal.
Unfortunately you cannot shape all your experiences to life. The very nature of life and of living involves
too many relationships, circumstances and interventions that permit that to be so. Free will is a beautiful gift to each and all of us but subject to interference. It directs your experiences but is not the only director of your experiences. There are some things that you can control and there are some things that you cannot or some things that will take control of you.
That being said, you still have plenty of free will to direct a sufficient amount of experiences that lead to positive outcomes and a more phenomenal you. Each new day is an opportunity for new experiences or to experience the same event with a different perspective or mind frame.
The trick is not to allow your life experiences to infect you like a virus with negative emotions and allow that feeling to become a pattern, that affects other behavior or experiences. The firewall to the virus is to take control of those experiences that you can or to create a series of positive and memorable experiences that nourish your soul and makes you more invulnerable.
Wake up and create some beautiful experiences. Wake up and make some good memories. The experiences that you create need not be of a phenomenal nature, but each that you can create becomes a memory, The more beautiful memories that you can create to each day, the more you write a better life story for yourself.
Let not others be the scribe for your soul but be your own scribe.
