reincarnate everyday

Every morning is like a new reincarnation into this world.
Let us take it then for what it is and live each moment anew.

-- Paul Brunton

To be able to reincarnate everyday, one has to be detached from his past including past concepts and conclusions. To live each moment, we have to not let our mind judge and categorize each event that occurs in our day. Categorizing events and people into good and bad, pleasant and painful, beneficial and harmful and all other dichotomies is the source of all problems. All this requires us to be aware at all times.

We do need our memory but more for technical reasons so this body can live not for judgements and categorizations.
