Now that's an idea. I will set myself up as a Reincarnation Ministry and sell Reincarnation Certifcation Franchises at $29.95 a shot. Now where did I put that file with the 3 million e-mail addresses in it...
Such as a white house on blocks in a white sandy yard where two roads meet. I can remember being a small child who held onto the gate and peered between the pickets at the beautiful moss hung trees across the road, then I would turn around and go under the house to play....that's where that one ends.
I saw a picture a long time back of that very house and location...the name of the town was Cassadaga, Florida. I actually yelled out when I saw it because I finally had confirmation that I wasn't crazy and imagining things. :)
(not sure of the spelling on the town but you can sound it out)
Along these psychical lines, surely the most fascinating and amazing of reports of 'proof of an afterlife' comes in the guise of the Scole Report [afterlife101.com] as published by the Society for Psychical Research and co-authored by the late Montague Keen [thepsychictimes.com]. I was lucky enough to attend an incredible and mind-wowing lecture given by him on the phenomena that was the Scole Experiment just a couple of months before he died.
Only our own self-importance makes us think that there has to be something else beyond or before this snapshot we call life and that we have a soul.
We are no different, except in terms of evolution, than an insect.
Beware of tricks of the mind, remember any good hypnotist can give you a broom and convince you that you are dancing with a beautiful woman. That is the power of the mind
Also, I've medically died twice and there were no blue lights, no visions etc things just fade out to nothing.
As indeed they should
Have you experienced any craving for, or do you own any of these?
I don't have any memories of past lives (or maybe I've forgotten again) but regression is certainly a nod to hypnotism, something I have a predilection for.
So the real answer is frustrating - we don't know. And neither the sciantist or the theologian has a monopoly on that answer.
.....we are everything and nothing
but that's how to play the game
in these weather beaten bodies
with these god forsaken brains
we can listen
listen to the universe resounding
in the pulsing and the pounding
of our infant ancient veins.....
I personally feel as if this world is one gigantic school and there are lessons that MUST be learned or we will keep coming back to the same type of life albeit the characters may change but not the situations, hence, deja vu.
once these are learned well then your next life will be advanced to even more but different learning situations until finally you will not need to "go no more out".
Just my thoughts, everyone is welcome to their own.
I'm living in the family house, in northern California, since at least 1938 when my dad first bought it.
Alongside the driveway was this shrub, which I later learned was a Rosemary bush.
Rosemary is an important herb used in all sorts of cuisine, French and Italian especially.
My parents died and I bought out my brother and sister and moved in, late 1980s.
The old bush was in terrible shape by then, just gnarled old knots of wood with here and there a sprig of green.
On the other side of the driveway, I planted a tiny nes new rosemary plant
(75 cents at the discount nursery) and it grew like a champ.
The OLD R-plant got a hard on! It grew new green and even blossomed!
I think it was trying to romance the new kid on the driveway.
Anyhow, I screwed up and accidentally killed the new R-bush with weed killer.
You have to be super careful with that stuff, watch the winds etc.
The new bush died, and the old one (at least 50 years old) withered entirely.
Finally I yanked them both out. I pitched the old one into a pile of potential firewood.
The new one stayed dead, but the OLD one kept pushing out a few spears of green.
This went on for months.
Finally, I cut off a piece or two of the OLD plant and stuck it into some damp soil,
right where the new plant used to be.
The cuttings from the OLD plant took root! Amazing! no roots, just cuttings.
Now the old plant is outgrowing everything else. I have to trim it back, it blocks my car.
Maybe just looking at a pretty young thing can add a new life to a tired old plant.
I would like to think that the plant "reincarnated". Maybe a better word is "reinvegitated".
Either way, I'd like the opinions of the many qualified botanists out there in Webmasterland.
