What happened to the child within you?
At one point we were all (or will be) 10 years old. After that, what happens to that 10 year old? Surely you can't remember every waking hour of everyone of those 365 days that you were 10. You may remember of couple of highlights, but how many of those highlights would you consider to have been a learning experience worth remembering and shaping who you are today? Probably not many, if any. And so it is with most years that you have lived thus far. I mean, how important are your experiences in the grand scheme of things? Think about how infinitely large the universe is compared to one human being. So that begs the question, if not your memories or experiences, what constitutes that which you call, "you?" Maybe it is your "life energy." Maybe this energy has a conciousness, even if it is incapable of storing memories. And since energy cannot be created nor destroyed, when you die, your energy "lives" on. Whatever that means.
