Who are we, and what is reincarnation? For some, it's the belief in the cycle of rebirth until we get our earthly experience right. For others, it's a concept they've never really contemplated. But let's entertain an idea: Could our souls be recycled to this earthly realm for a purpose?
Why? Why return to this place? When you weigh the pros and cons, the world we all experience can feel like either heaven or hell, depending on our life situations. However, for the sake of brevity, let's delve into reincarnation and explore the possibility that we may have asked for it, even if we don't remember. It might initially sound absurd – why would we return to such a messed-up realm? But what if we don't have a choice? Now, that's a thought worth pondering.
There's a rich history going back thousands of years, delving into the concept of reincarnation, particularly in Hinduism and Buddhism. It's seen as a means of purifying the soul. Even early thinkers like Pherecydes of Syros in 540 BCE considered reincarnation.
But should we rely on others to do all the work and tell us what to believe? It's better to take responsibility for our own lives and experiences. If others' beliefs don't align with peace, love, freedom, logic, and purpose, they're not for me.
I view my body as a vessel, much like a shipping container. Within it resides my personality, spirit, chi, prana, life force, and past life baggage – all part of the same soul.
Everything within this container is pre-programmed, creating ripples that affect various aspects of my life, from relationships to experiences in the collective reality.
This analogy simplifies the complexity of life, and I hope it resonates with you. So, where am I going with this? What if some of the contents represent our baggage and the unlearned lessons of life? What if our egos and attachment to these things are the reasons we keep returning, holding us back and affecting our mind, spirit, and body, hindering our progress to the next level of our journey?
Consider this: What if we're meant to achieve something here but face too many distractions, almost as if something or someone is interfering with us? Have you ever experienced déjà vu, feeling like you've done something before? Could it be a warning, an awakening to a past life's unlearned lessons to which we must pay attention?
Maybe we keep returning because we haven't fulfilled our purpose and remain unaware, stuck in a cycle like students in "School." When we don't perform well, we must revisit the same class until we pass.
So, if we return because we failed at something and can't progress until we succeed, perhaps it's time to look inward at our vessel, the "Shipping Container," and eliminate what no longer serves us. It's like spring cleaning – emptying what's unnecessary before moving forward.
