The generation we live in; history and tradition is what we rely on. Yes times have changed, but our minds will overlap with the past, history will repeat itself and tradition is our present.
You can't say, 'forget about the past'. The past is what brought you here, it's what defines who you are and how you think. Doesn't inevitably mean you can't learn and arise from certain situations, it just means remember them.The pain,happiness, sadness or anger isn't forever, but the thought of it is with you forever, and in that moment the feeling you felt that day will still remain. The Past is what brought you here, it's what defines who you are and how you think.
