The Lotus

The lotus grows from dark places. Consciousness and potential enlightenment grow from the memories of unenlightened actions. If, at each moment, we had no memory of any previous moment so that every sensation began and ended simultaneously and had zero duration, then we would be unconscious.

However, memories perpetuate attachments, aversions and identifications that are unenlightened responses to present awareness.
