It's true the past indisputably happened. In this way, the past is set in stone, leaving us with little we can ever do to be completely free of it. What's not set in stone are our assessments, judgements, and opinions about what happened in the past. They're more malleable. Letting alone what happened in the past ie leaving the past in the past, and instead taking responsibility for authoring the assessments, judgements, and opinions we hold about what happened in the past, is the way the past and what happened in the past, is recontextualized (I love that word).
Recontextualizing the past and what happened in the past, is arguably the (if not the then an) essential bastion of transformation ... and that's a subject for another conversation on another occasion.
