REINCARNATION – Fact or Fiction? 1

QUESTION EVERYTHING!

“Open-minded” is an easily tossed around term these days. That you are here shows you may truly “be” open minded. Yet, you may have simply arrived with a preconceived notion to blast anyone speaking on a subject that, in your mind, must be false by virtue of the fact that you have not proven it yet. That too is valid and honest. “Question everything personally” is my motto.

There are people who claim to know the Bible inside and out, who have already pre-judged – period (too subtle?). Slowly but surely they’re starting to digest what Jesus clearly stated, “I am the way, the truth and the light”, yet still insist on a preacher’s 3rd hand interpretations. Most of them will say reincarnation does not exist because it is not in The Book, ignoring the abundant references Jesus made to when he would return/reincarnate. The key to all is in the “I am”.

The Good Book also states clearly, “ask and ye shall receive”. We pray for the irrelevant materialistic trappings and discard the truth when our dream yacht fails to materialize. Open minded is not an easy way to “be”. Even the tiniest doubt, fear, or prejudice will block the answers and manifestations we so desperately seek – as will desperation itself.

step 1 & 2

From my experience, asking with only the purest loving intentions, will not only produce fruitful answers, but also allow us to recognize them when they appear. Thus, the FIRST STEP as a true seeker, is to understand ourselves completely and the “why” of our question(s). Without this, on what basis can we determine if our question is pure and loving?

Why do you want to know if reincarnation is fact or fiction? Will it help every moment of the rest of your life? STEP 2 then is “how” will it improve your physical or spiritual journey? In our present level of awareness, the “how” will change dramatically once the answer is revealed, but we can only operate from where we are now. Pick the first “why” and “how” that come to your mind. Yes, the very first answer will reveal your truth.

once you know, you know...

OBSTACLES OR SIMPLICITY

If you find yourself off on a scattered tangent intellectualizing, it is not pure and loving. Experts make things sound so simple - don’t they? That is because they truly understand. Once we do, no subject is complicated.

I remember giving a speech on Einstein’s Theory of Relativity when I was 10. Does that make me a genius? I don’t think so. Simply, there were no obstacles of fear, doubt, or preconceived notions blocking my belief of understanding. Moreover, it easily made perfect sense to me because there was no delusion of complication while researching.

The purest, most loving intention I had in wanting to know if reincarnation was fact or fiction was – I really wanted to know! Reading any book on it was useless because my trust in another person’s interpretation was next to nil. Why read if you are not sure the subject matter is even valid?

The same held true concerning the “how” it could help me. Any author’s reasoning of how it would improve life met my mind with an immediate, “that’s their life, not mine”.

 

WHO'S HOW?

Montana Farm Girl helped me understand the importance of the why in her comment on my hubDREAMS ARE AN OPENING DOOR. She shared that her son was born with an ability to see auras and mentioned encouraging him to revive that gift. Now, that is open-minded!

She realized that viable answers are from anyone who has experienced a similar situation or dilemma! In addition, her quest/question was with the purest loving intentions for her son. My response required me to articulate the relevance of meaningful personal application to motivate our desire of honing any gift or avenue of truth.

Thank you Montana Farm Girl . You inadvertently gave me the final missing puzzle piece to clarifying the steps of “getting there”.

 

“Been there done that” can be a vague and general remembrance,

dwarfed by the “OH wow!” of arrival.

 

This example is also perfect to see the “process” in action. Less than 24 hours earlier, Feline Prophet said, “Do write about soul travel and previous lives...there are many here who want to learn more. :). I immediately thought to myself, “why?” I knew Feline Prophet’s ‘why’ would be different from your why, or my why. Whom do I write for?

In the response, this hub was born along with a thought in my mind that I was not able yet, to explain it well enough (doubt). I thought the key lay in “After acceptance and digesting that concept [how dreams can help us manage stress with more foresight and grace./be useful in our daily lives], it is understood that soul travel and previous life experiences become "allowable" without having to fight our egos. There are no “secrets”.

As Deepak Chopra explains on the [Gratitude Log 21 days to more abundance] hub, gratitude cannot co-exist with one's ego. If we want to know and witness a previous life, it cannot be to return to say or feel, "I'm so good" or, in my belief, not only for money/profit – again not purely loving intentions. However, that was not what was missing and knew it by my nagging gut.

Therefore, I “put out there” that I wanted the answer to what was missing before I could perhaps explain it to others who were interested. Less than a day later, Montana Farm Girl‘s comment revealed the answer. I had to eliminate my doubt (and fear), clarify the question with a why, and answer the “how” it would make any difference to him, or anyone he would touch in his life. Naturally, my “answer” would not be his answer – or mom’s. Personally, there are many useful ways for that gift, but that is in my life – not necessarily in his.

+ determination and persistence
+ determination and persistence

K.I.S.S. IT

Would you like to know the “how it would improve my life” that came to me?

Remember, K.I.S.S. – KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID/uncomplicated.

My answer: it would improve my life because - - - are you on the edge of your seat? - - - my answer just might be the same as yours - - - once simplified lovingly, we discover our “cores” differ very little - - - because - - - then I could read about it without doubt, fear or a lack of trust. I would be wasting my time with those blocks in place. They would prevent me from seeing or knowing if it were even valid.

Once I asked, determination and persistence played a huge role – as they do to successfully achieve anything valuable. My answer was revealed so clearly, there is now no question about it in my mind at all. In addition, reading anyone else’s experiences is not necessary to find out if it is true or not but merely for fun. Once you know, you know.

Awesome movie - especially for authors!!!

The “how it could help every moment of my life did indeed dramatically change and the added awareness has improved my life beyond…

As Sean Connery said in “Finding Forrester when Rob Brown asked him what it felt like to author a Pulitzer Prize winning book, “Why not find out for yourself?” I will however, let you in on that in the next hub, Part 11, on this subject.

Before you scoot on over there though, I reiterate – there is no point reading any of that until you, yourself know if it is true, valid or how it would change a moment of your life. Should I have posted “homework required” on the top of this hub? That way you could have dismissed it with a whole lot of preconceived notions or doubts and fears without having wasted a moment reading (just kidding).

So, for whom did I write this?

For YOU.

It is your choice and now you know exactly how to answer, “Reincarnation – fact or fiction?” for yourself :)

I was meant to read this! It can't be a co-incidence that I spotted it just as I was about to log off...I promptly took a little diversion.:)

As an Indian the idea of reincarnation is part of my conditioning and I suppose I didn't really question it when I was growing up. It's only later as an adult when I was asking questions and thinking about the whys and wherefores of things we take for granted that I began to look at reincarnation with new eyes. To me it explains a lot of things about the way we are and how we react to people and situations...

Looking forward to hearing more about your understanding of reincarnation SEM Pro!

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL name FP - can I call you by name on hp? So glad you found your way here. You speak mit true tongue (as my dad used to say). Here in the west it is usually judged falsely before proven one way or the other - in Indian, normally accepted before proven - strange.

Your explanation of the positive aspects are felt so deeply once you know, you know! It does change everything with clarity and for me, confirms some of the beliefs I felt, without knowing why I felt that way.

Lessons learned are bridges you have already crossed - saves a LOT of time not having to keep crossing. I cherish continued connections as well, rather than just considering them a friend who has passed for example.

So many reasons - glad you're looking forward to reading more dear Lady, because I look forward to writing more :)

Fact of fiction? Proven or unproven? Relevant or irrelevant? All just words without the emotion of feeling attached. The things we feel but cannot touch. The things we know are there but cannot see.

You have once again written a thought provoking, insightful hub. You have surely asked and received as it is said to be. Bible thumpers say it is not in there and I say it is not refuted in there either. It is left to our hearts to know not only what truth is, but also what is relevant for each of us to have pure knowledge of.

Right (write) on!


SEM Pro profile image

SEM Pro 7 years ago from North America Author

Thank you so much emohealer - your visits and comments mean much because you do clearly understand! I did ask, I did receive and thus, it is no longer something I know but cannot see - must be relevant for me :)

BTW - I believe it is in the Bible. The manifestations of God however, came to plant seeds we were capable of digesting at the time. That 2,000 years have passed and many still don't understand or attempt to incorporate the basics i.e. "judge not and ye shall not be judged", is easy proof that we can be slooooooooow learners :(

But there is always hope that new framing of words will spark new insights...

Your ending is wonderful! Appreciate the encouragement!

Reincarnation is a FACT. In too many instances are people admitting to the fact that they recall living in places half-way around the globe, be it a village and know the names of all the people, know the town's history and personal and private lives of would-be strangers. They would remember where certain things were buried or hidden, they would remember ancestors of the living and recall historic events never captured on paper. There are many of these recurring events and can no-longer pushed away as mere coincidence. Great article.


SEM Pro profile image

SEM Pro 7 years ago from North America Author

Thank you so much for reading and adding your tremendously persuasive wisdom dear dohn121! I hope you too have joined the ranks of us who can recall and see these things without any trace of doubt.

When I was a young teenager, I heard Baha'u'llah's easy explanation, "That which comes into being by the law of composition can decompose. Your spirit has nothing to do with that law..." This undoubtedly contributed to my being able to accept the reality of reincarnation.

Appreciate the thumbs up as well. Part 11 is in the works with some "general" benefits for expanding our perspectives.

Every psychic I've ever met has adamantly asked if I know "how old" I am. The last one had me wanting to find a cane somewhere. lol "You are such an old, old, old, old soul!" "Yeah? Thanks a lot lady - was feeling pretty young and spry today before meeting you!" :(

I look forward to reading more of your sound logic dear Sir. As a traveler - you too are undoubtedly "old, old" :)

I must completely know myself before I can ask the question..? Hardly...I am forever asking questions related to the how and why of my existence...and I ain't knowing myself that much...The Oracle of Delphi said much the same to all questions...

This Hub seems to be more a question of faith, or belief, than a careful consideration of reincarnation, as it can only be in the final analysis..

I remain skeptical, but have high hopes of returning to this fair earth as a raven, to play, love, and soar with the winds...

Thanks for this provocative and well-written Hub...Larry

SEM Pro profile image

SEM Pro 7 years ago from North America Author

Thank you for your visit Larry - nice to meet you. I agree too, we do not have to know ourselves completely to ask the questions, only to hear the answers clearly enough to free ourselves of skepticism.

For me "the consideration of reincarnation" is scientific and as others have pointed out, irrefutably proven. Yet, there are still those who doubt so yes, faith is an integral ingredient. This initial hub on the subject then is written to help understand that our "beliefs" may interfere, no matter how "open-minded" we may think we are.

Appreciate your comment. If you decide to do the homework, be happy to soar the winds with you anytime :)

Another thought provoking hub...thanks for posing such a mind bending question.

I have personally joked all the time that in my past life I was such and such... That must be from my unconscious, so I am willing to explore that with you Sem Pro.

My openness to the world and life has challenged my christian upbringing but maybe it's not a challenge after all. We just have to delve deeper into our understanding.

As usual, thanks for the opportunity to explore another avenue of self discovery.


SEM Pro profile image

SEM Pro 7 years ago from North America Author

Wow DynamicS, your words envelop my heart with warmth. That is exactly what I've found - the deeper we go, the less challenges we find with what we know, we know. I'm a born again Christian Baha'i who practices the Tao with daily spiritual Eckankar exercises. I couldn't have made it without fully comprehending Buddha's inner peace, doing my best to stay in a Zen state of mind with every action. Referencing the Kabbalah sure helps put it into words beautifully!

Dreams can assist coping skills, soul travel the balance of true freedom, and the golden thread weaving through our past lives easily reveals our greater purpose. The more we can diminish our attachment to the one-sided "opinions" in this world of duality, the easier all the wisdom of the universe avails itself to us - the moment we ask with 100% intention.

If there is a contradiction - anywhere - further research and comprehension is a path we must once in awhile make time for... and smell, listen, see, feel and be grateful for in each and every second.

I used to joke like that too, or have that deep inner feeling that I knew people before. Even married a spiritual buddy once - we just knew we were spiritual buddies and leaped light years in that direction. We were however, about the farthest thing from compatible physical lovers as you could imagine. I used to joke that he was my priest in another life - how does one get together with a priest? It was comforting to find out the truth :)

Very glad you may explore further in this area too DynamicS! Please remember, focusing intensely on one at a time helps see the answers more easily. No point going into spiritual overwhelme. Patience with ourselves may be our first piece of the peace :)

I hesitate to discount reincarnation as fiction. I think there may be something to it. I have also had dreams set in another time, so I think that may have something to it as well. As a Christian, I have looked for mentions of it in the Bible, and I am led to the story of Elijah and John the Baptist.


SEM Pro profile image

SEM Pro 7 years ago from North America Author

Very much appreciate you coming by and commenting advisor4qb! Your comment is a blessing in that it shows us, where we are, is where we were meant to be. You were guided with a mild interest and it satisfied your curiosity. If or when you want to learn more, it will unfold as you are ready to absorb or digest the information.

I've always thought it curious how our minds can block out incidents even from this lifetime as children if they were too brutal or shocking. We can often also remain "stuck" at a certain age when horrific events 'rocked our world' to the core. The mind is a wonderful thing! When we're ready, the guidance will be there to remove blocks or reveal what we need on our journey...

God bless and don't ever let anyone convince you to doubt Christianity. Clearly, 2000+ years later, we are still learning all Jesus offered to teach us. Even if we get all that right and act as He did, our sacred contracts and missions of purpose will light the world dramatically!

We are the best here and now that we have ever been :)

Interesting thoughts. Reincarnation - is it in the Bible? - well when they "made" the bible as we know it today they took out around 24 manuscripts and decided they didnt want those in there so its not only reincarnation that was chucked out! Much of the real truth was omitted for political and control of consciousness reasons. But even though many people know this they choose to blinker themselves and go with the "story". Not only were many of the manuscripts in the original discarded but much of the text was changed and mistranslated. Many choose still to forget that there is a history to religion and one of the most important things is to first know the history - then take a look at the story and see whether you want to live by it. If you were going to buy a car and didnt look to see if it had an engine you would be kicking yourself for believing the advert or the marketing, why not with the Bible? It has become a taboo for so called religious people to even question it, this has to be a down grading of consciousness. Do you want to become a part of that. Check out some of the missing manuscripts that were rejected from the Bible of today. The internet is a good place to begin this research. The question is not "Is it in the Bible" but more have you de-programmed yourself and aligned yourself so that you remember where you came from.

Namaste


SEM Pro profile image

SEM Pro 7 years ago from North America Author

Aloha Namaste. You ask if I "want to become a part of that" - I speak of the glory Jesus was and wisdom he offered. Will never condone being a judgmental Bible thumper, as expressed as subtely as possible in this hub initially. I believe if we read each story and message in the Bible, applying it to how it could improve each moment of our life in the here and now, we can find deep wisdom through it's many levels of insight.

That Christianity's foundation is fundamentally built on "control" of others, is obvious. As we look around, we see, hear and are judged by the many twisted misinterpretations. Lowering myself to the level of "fighting", or equally attempting to judgmentally diminish those who haven't yet felt the glory of "eyes to see and ears to hear" is not a goal I wish to pursue.

Throughout the ages, words are transformed - etymology is interesting to say the least i.e. it has not been that long since the term "empower" has become popular. Yet, a mere few years ago, society as a whole had the opportunity to use "impower" - they both mean the same. I find it an interesting reflection of our collective consciousness that we were afraid to admit "I AM POWER" rather than a transitional admittance of how most still prefer to relinquish their own responsibility with "th'em power".

Simplifying that which we do understand - Jesus saying he would return is a blatantly obvious admission of reincarnation's reality - which occupies an entire chapter in The Book. Because "they" didn't understand it yet and may have deleted references, either assuming others wouldn't understand, or that they couldn't maintain control if they were there, or that their own power would be diminished by simple virtue of another soul recognizing them, is no reason not to "witness" (true witnessing being to watch cause and effect unfold before us with detachment).

We can choose to rise above the strife, focusing on the positive and lead the way. Or we can join in their negative, disimpowering game for another 2,000 years. Personally I choose to "impower" if I can by helping others recognize the "I AM" that Jesus offered as a gift, enlightening our paths with love and compassionately virtuous strivings.

Where we came from, if taken to deeper levels with soul travel and past life regression, will always remain somewhat frightening as long as we hang onto fear - especially fear of death. Naturally, our travels in the past will occasionally include reliving some of those deaths and it can be traumatic without the fundamental knowing "I am soul"...

Thus I prefer to relinquish "programming" altogether - and do my best to encourage others to accept that freeing choice as well. Some are not ready - some are...

Interesting discussion indeed :) Appreciate your comment!

SEM Pro 7 years ago from North America Author

Hi someonewhoknows! Thanks for the great addition - I like it. Although many realize soul travel may be a sole journey, I'm creating this series because I've enjoyed traveling with others - it's fun! Rather than simply talk about it, my challenge is to share the fundamental steps, paradigm shifts, beliefs (or elimination of them) that have helped me travel more easily. Part 2, that I'm about to publish, encourages those really interested, as I was, to be clear on where they are right now. Without that, there is no point traveling anywhere.

By the 3rd or 4th of the series, I'm more than happy to share a few of my experiences in detail - no discretion required. The openness - the living with candor/honesty and having no secrets, is a huge part of the freedom that allows us to soar. Thanks for asking :) Would you like me to notify you as they're published?

Yet again a very insightful treatment of a very prickly (for some) subject. Through this hub series, I have no doubt that many will be elevated to understanding and the pure joy it brings with it. It is a great feeling not to fear death and be able to truly embrace the freedom to enjoy LIFE. I know that there are many souls far older than you or I and to them I would pose this question:

How many times must you go around before becoming one with you?

Reincarnation is its own truth. Whether we have reached the point where we believe it or not. this only indicates that we are on different parts of the wheel of life, which turns at its own speed. Likewise religion has little to do with it, but ask yourself, this, how many times does it use the term "eternal life"? Once the BELIEF is there, understanding follows, if we are open-minded.

I am envious of the facility you have in explaining these rather difficult subjects and can only say "YOU GO GIRL!!!"

I re-read your entire comment after responding Namaste and realized you too were saying to "deprogram". Thank you so much for your addition - very, very insightful remarks!

Yes, I am continually amazed at how many almost destroy each other, stop each other with chains (verbal, emotional, physical) from rising above the strife and without a moment's worth of further consideration say, "but it says in Bible! [i.e. that I have to remain married]

This series, and much of what you, emohealer, I and many others write and share, lights the path to spiritual healing, enlightenment, fulfillment, health, peace and yet there they are with their Bibles, unable to dig to the relevant meaning for themselves of any particular story as if they have the "only answer" God intended to share, or Universal Energy needs to flow...

We must exercise patience my dear - every moment of every day and when we can no longer stand it, soar out of body and out of this world to feel that which we know. Upon our return, what we speak of only spurs us on to shine brighter until they see. I have been there myself. Will post part 3 today of a past life.

The bible says so (existence of reincarnation) but you chrisitans revolt and say the opposite.

Aloha Jaisimha - thank you for the add - interesting blog. I believe many Christians are afraid because of that possibility of transformation. Appreciate your visit and comment :)

I believe in reincarnation. I read a great book called The Soul's Plan by Robert Schwartz, who makes cases of children who can recall having other parents and living in other cities, and can find them with help getting there. And if people who are Christians say there is no reincarnation, how do they explain Jesus' return to life? If you read the first few pages of Acts, he did not come back in the same body or form. That's why Thomas doubted him. I've written alot on this topic in various ways in hubs. Nicely done!

Delighted to hear from you Jean and thanks for your comment. I totally agree re: Christian philosophy > the entire book of Revelations is about him reincarnating and, many millions of us believe he did as Baha'u'llah, translated from Persian as the "Glory of God". In Revelations Jesus said he would come back through "The Gate" (The Bab) and did just that. Matter of fact, almost all the Manifestations of God said they'd return and shared where they'd be, when they'd be there etc. To me, that would have been proof enough since their words were proven true despite Baha'u'llah being imprisoned, exiled, poisoned and all beyond his control. William Sears (a devout Christian) set out to disprove all and as with most who truly research, ended up writing a book "Thief In The Night" showing scientific proof of every passage.

Religious beliefs can be twisted to suit justifications though. Just as the declaration of Jehads killing innocent thousands, when Muhammad only finally fought back because of the inhumanities he witnessed.

Skepticism led by a closed mind is mere ignorance. Eventually, truth will always prevail :)
