Living Life Through our Memories or the Momentary Experience

From a neurological perspective, we can live life in two absolutely different worlds that have little to do with each other. We can experience life very directly or live life through our memories and perceptions. We need memories to function in everyday life but we certainly can reduce the time spent in these memories and live life through our momentary experiences more often. What does it mean and how can it be achieved? The notion of letting go can take a very concrete tone. We can learn to observe the constant switching from the neurological narrative network to the experimental network.  It is again very important to bring these concepts to consciousness instead of being blindly affected by them.  We are not victims anymore but we become an avid observer of the fascinating life we live.
