Edgar Cayce Said
(Q) Why is it difficult for me to remember? (A) It isn't difficult! It's rather trained in self to forget! See the differentiation between forgetting and remembering, is--memory is the exercising of the inner self as related to thought. To acknowledge that the memory is poor, is to say you don't think much! The forgetting is to say that the thought becomes self-centered, for memory is thought--even as thought is memory, brought to the forefront by the association of ideas.
