Correct Understanding

Unless one is free of the past (not forget the past), one cannot understand any thing accurately. When such is the case, should'nt every individual at least be circumspect of their feelings / thoughts and actions as they could potentially be corrupted by their own past history? Patanjali says the Yogi is one who is always established in correct understanding. Its an oblique indication about the understanding of the non-Yogi. Is'nt desiring correct understanding desirable?
