Michael Laitman, On Quora: “Why can we not access all of our memories?“
Everything we go through in life will have to surface from our memory storage at some point. Whether consciously or unconsciously, we will use our every life experience. We will then also understand that everything happened to us for a specific reason.
According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, we will need every moment we went through at—and for—the end of our correction: the final state of our existence where we completely invert our egoism into altruism, and exist as one interconnected whole existing in balance with nature—enjoying a common sensation of eternity and perfection. Everything in our memories and in general comes from the incarnations that our soul undergoes.
Therefore, in relation to the ability to access all of our memories, the main takeaway is that our memories are active either consciously or subconsciously, and moreover, we do not have to work with our memories. On the contrary, we should aspire to be new people every day. Whatever happened in the past, happened, and today we try to reach a more complete and higher correction.
