The more you use your memory, the more vivid your memories will become. Think back to when a pleasurable experience happened to you. Remember what it was like to be there, then remember exactly how you felt during those moments. It's all there in your memory banks gathering dust. I used to hike. I remember those experiences often and each time more of the actual experience comes back. Sometimes I can remember the sounds the animals made or how the place looked at sunset. If you remember the same experience often enough, it will seem as if you are doing it all over again. That's valuable to me.

They are the foundation of your consciousness, upon them are built your understanding of the people around you and the society you should be immersed within. They give you language, appreciation of the arts, the use of our technology, understanding of others feelings, motivations and likely actions. They can warm your heart, enlighten your soul and allow you to see across time. Are memories valuable for other than their basis seeming utility - oh yes!

I think that to learn from them is surely the best use of our memories. Some other uses may be to; enjoy them, or you can also use memories for more vivid visualization sessions allowing for self image modification. Which steers your subconcious mind towards creating the type of experiences that you are visualizing.

Remembering feelings helps a lot because in times of blah or lack of stimulation it's easy to forget what actually feeling good or bad feels like. In that case you start labeling everything as bad-the same happens if you were to be in complete bliss everyday-you would forget how good it feels and eventually label it as blah, or even bad. You need a frame of reference to compare.
