The trapped attention also traps some of our power of intention, so all four competencies (of all possible intelligences) are impaired -- those competencies being:
ATTENDING | REMEMBERING | IMAGINING | INTENDING
That set of four competencies is partially ensnared by every memory cyst. Memory cysts exact a cost upon human beings, making us less intelligent.
That's why grievances are not best swept under the rug, for long: they don't go away; they lurk under the effortfull veneer of social civility or shared cause and they sometimes make us do stupid things. Again and again.
The easiest way to "repent" without humiliation is to open memory cysts by recovering the open channel of imagination, of what may be possible. How to do that is a technical question best answered by practical instruction.
ABSORB them MEMORY CYSTS !!
Wanna know how?
