Memory records emotional states and becomes useless if it brings about a repetition of a past that impedes evolution. But memory is useful if it helps you preparing for the future. Your hips have a memory, the link between your hips and your emotional state being profound. However, we rarely let our hips play or explore a full range of movement, becoming like a bowl, catching and holding the residue of traumas or stress.

Explore your hips in their full range of motion and let go of the things you hold onto. Deal with feelings in the present as they arise. For an average person, memory is a past state of mind. For the yogi, it is full present.
