Seeing our pattern emerge

"More generally, I feel the whole of one's youth to be immensely important and even of immense length.  The gradual reading of one's own life, seeing the pattern emerge, is a great illumination of our age.  And partly, I hope, getting freed from the past as past by apprehending it as structure."
C.S. Lewis, Yours, Jack

I love this idea that our past is not something to be overcome or put behind us.   Rather, it is the support and strength of who we are today - and who we will be tomorrow - as we see our "pattern emerge".
