Hijacked Orwell/Santayana Quotations

I am totally guilty of hijacking George Orwell’s amazing quotation from his novel “1984” but it made me smile when I saw it today. The Orwell quote was in a Daily Beast article about how the “number of students choosing to major in history at the nation’s major colleges has plummeted” according to the American Historical Association. So yes, I know Orwell is speaking of the study of history so we aren’t “doomed to repeat it” as Santayana is widely misquoted.. But in the context of past lives explorations, and uncovering the subtle energies that filter into our daily lives, its golden:

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

I believe this past lives work allows us to control our past history and keep it from ruling our present,

And this is George Santayana’s original text, often misquoted but equally applicable:

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
