~ Most of the time, we are looking at one another through the lenses of our own history. Anyone who becomes deeply important to us, is by that very fact, replaying a crucial role from our past. In fact, this is how people become important to us.
~ How many of our choices in life and relationships are tied to our own past, how much of what we call home is an archeological site.
~ The goal is to break the hold our ancient history has over us. Our challenge is to keep what is useful and to confront the ways it maybe limiting our ability to reimagine ourselves and our relationships.
From the book: "When the Past Is Present"
