Present-Past Connection

Socrates reportedly taught that the unexamined life is not worth living. Researchers estimate that only about 10-15% of what at goes on in the “mind” comes to conscious awareness. Studies suggest that 70% of relational choices and communication in the present reflect your own past, primarily what exists outside of conscious awareness but impacts everything at a subconscious level. Many people want to “let sleeping dogs lie” and prefer not to connect the past with the present (it is so much easier to blame others); however, you can only deal effectively with and manage well what you can identify, label, and describe.
