Once upon a time – our created past

Spirit tells me that everyone is living a story that we create

As we live it.

 

The past may belong to an earlier chapter in our story, but

Through the magical art of reflection we can reminisce and

Embellish what might otherwise have been considered as

Meaningless or distressful memories.

 

Our creative mind can provide whatever past situation

With a greater depth of glory, pleasure, love, or

Personal satisfaction. We can even adjust facts, or

What we thought were facts at the time, as well as

The level of skills and understanding that we may

Actually remember having achieved during those

Earlier chapters of our story.

 

Why, He asks, do we, and everyone does edit the past?

For many reasons, not least of which is to bolster

Self-esteem, or public esteem, as many leaders

Seem to feel a need to do.

 

You ask me if the past really happened at all?

That, my child, depends upon how politically correct

You want my answer to be.
