All our lives here and now (when we are awake and able to make positive or
negative choices) are affected by our own past and the past of others.
If the feeling is a valuable one, then with our minds we should be able to
examine it closely and find out what value it has, in terms of the immediate
present and the possible future.
Any step of choice we make will result in a learning experience. since, as
