The past that we think we remember

Spirit tells me that the past that we think we remember, was not a memory then.

When we were there, it was a now, with memories of its own.

We may have lived the past that we remember, He tells me, but not exactly as we remember.

We now can look back and choose to see our then situation from the view of an observer, or stay locked into the more limited view that we necessarily had, then.
