Clearly the Universe agrees with you, which is why the people with memory are in the tiny minority. Most people, if given full recall, would never go through their karmas here as they had intended to before the birth. When one can recall their past lives--especially the non-physical astral lives of living in castles beyond description, flying, bi-locating, peace, love, joy, stimulating work for the Light, it can be quite a jolt to have to clean bathrooms, commute to work, scrape for existence on the physical plane. A bit of a motivation problem...
This is gradually changing though, and more people are recalling physical lives, which are easier in integrate than the heavenly "between lives" lives. Some memory of the astral will be there--enough to let one know that this place is not the end of things--but not so much as to distract.
