Many years ago, I went on a pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash in Nepal. What if I forget that I went on that trip? I imagine I am looking at the pictures but, cannot remember a thing. It is this loss of memory of the experience we had that causes us to lose our minds. We do not remember where we came from, what is the purpose for which we came, or who we really are. We have lost the memory of our home and are now lost. This is why we lose our minds, as we have lost the compass in our lives. Our memories have been erased, so we have to start from scratch by becoming seekers. We are not looking for new experiences — just trying to be aware of the ones we have forgotten. The feeling of helplessness occurs when we know in our subconscious minds that the experience occurred but we have no memory of it. — Satish Daryanani
