Past Life

Post # 1
ok i tried one of those past life remember things, And what i saw was Lots of grass, a little girls voice shouting daises, And then I, Well in this vision, Ran and went on the swings and then a dog came out and mauled me, then i started crying, My "mom" came out and everything went black. I was woundering could this have been my past life due to the fact that i felt like a was creating the "Memory" and not just receiving it. So despite that feeling, could this have been a past life memory?

Why are you asking us? Know in your heart that this memory is your past life. If you think that this is your past life and it couldn't have been anything else, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

But if you want my opinion:
It is very probable that this is a segment of your past life. Good luck trying to figure it out.

If everybody has a "past life" why is it only one? There are so many descriptions of living in a "different body" in some past century; but usually only one. If we have all lived before, then the last body we had has also lived before; and the one before that,and the one before that! And so on,right back to the primordial swamp! It is really the religious idea of an immortal soul. The soul leaves the dead body, wanders around for a while in "the spirit world", then comes back to life in another body.
I have a question. When the soul enters a new body, what happens to that body's original soul?

@Brysing: Well, presumably that body's "original" soul is the soul that had been wandering around in the first place.

I mean, there are things like walk-ins, bodily cohabitation, demonic possession, but I don't know much about those besides what meaning can be taken from the names. Although those are where the body of the host soul could be displaced from it's original inhabitant, presumably.

In that case, Adapa, nobody has an original soul.And when does the new soul enter the new body? Before birth? At conception? So far as I understand it, the idea of a soul is a "belief". That's fair enough. So I don't mind anybody saying "I believe I have lived before.". But I cannot accept, "In my past life I was a farmer,soldier, housemaid, or whatever." That is stating a belief as a fact. I once had to put a teacher straight when she told my daughter that Jesus was God. No school-teacher can say, "Paris is the capital city of France" and at the same time say that Jesus was God. One is a provable fact; the other is a belief. You mix them up at your peril!

Well Brysing, I'm sorry said teacher overstepped their boundaries.

I'm not sure how someone saying they have been *insert occupation here* in a past life is more than belief, they can't prove it to you or I any more than I could prove to someone that a deity does or doesn't exist, it is just that the person claiming such a thing believes it with conviction, it is real and true for them which is the important thing anyway.

As for people not having original souls, 1) I would very much like to think we are more than electrochemical lumps of grey matter and flesh, but I don't know what to think, and I wasn't saying we do or do not have a soul. 2) If we do have them, what stops the soul from being original? Does it need to be built anew for a new body, or would the experiences that body and mind have over a lifetime make the 'soul' more unique, more whole, whatever?

All I am trying to say is that a soul is a belief; and yes, it is just the same as a belief in a deity. Great thinkers for centuries have pondered on the idea of a soul;and got nowhere. It is a belief, pure and simple. And yes there are people who strongly believe they have lived before. We are very strange and vulnerable animals,we humans. Open to all sorts of suggestions.We tend to believe in whatever "the majority" believe. It is the problem of all acquired "knowledge". We have to sift through a very large haystack to get at the needle.

Many things are only belief. Magick for instance isn't a belief system, however, belief or lack thereof in the magick is a factor in attaining a result. Some things in science also require a certain degree of belief, it may be a theory of how the universe came to be or how life on earth started and progressed, but in all the spots that pull a blank in terms of evidence there requires a certain amount of belief in the assumptions made to fill in those blanks.

I think for the most part we agree. And I do especially concur with your statement about any actual truthful/useful/factual information being a needle in a proverbial haystack.

I totally believe in past lives, don't want to share...
Anyhow, interesting thing that relates, there's a recent study that shows a high probability of us carrying some memories from our ancestors; the details slip my memory but I had a long discussion with my co-workers when this report came out.
Still, I think you'll instinctual know which is an actual past life memory and which are ones an ancestor past down.
Go with you're gut!
