Perhaps you’re aware of a waning interest in your thoughts. That’s a good thing! Thoughts depend for their survival on one thing—our interest in them. Less interest, fewer thoughts, more space. Paul spoke of this as a process of putting aside childish things.
We clear the mind of memories when we lose interest in what we are remembering. This happens naturally, without intention or effort, and hastens as regret and anticipation slink away without saying goodbye.
