Lat us say that our Souls are eternal beings that exist in a realm beyond space and time. We can enter this world in order to learn and develop. The only problem is once we enter this reality through the birth of a new person we lose all previous knowledge until we exit(die). If Tiger Wood's soul came to Earth to learn, what do you think is it's mission?
Hi, My understanding is that the Soul intends to learn many things in relation to it's main objective. Before the Soul comes to Earth a great meeting is held where it gathers other Souls to help in it's mission. Those other souls also intend to learn their own lessons too and can enter this world at different times and stages of the main Souls Human life. Great tasks are usually taken on by older more experienced souls while the younger ones help out. Older Souls take on tasks as cripples or the mentally disabled or even great people who fall from grace.
The fantasy is called reincarnation. A concept that thousands of eastern cultures and indigenous peoples believe in. In fact all religions and evolution are fantasy. None are proven only fantastic concepts some more logical than others.
My religion is reality!....
which may but not necessarily be similar to evolution. That does not stop me from listening to what others have to say. There are many knowledgeable people on Hubpages right now who believe that aliens are coming in 2012. How is that for fantasy?
When I think of a world view I try to see myself through the eyes of a starving child in war torn Sudan that has no hope for the future. Where is his/her God. Who is it that plays with the lives of the unfortunate? We all would like to know, wouldn't we.
"My religion is reality" means that I believe in the most powerful living thing that I know of, Humanity. Can science explain consciousness? No yet! Humans have the ability to invent things like religion(mans greatest invention) and exist in our own realities if you wish. Sane or insane, it is still an ability of Humanity. I follow Evolution because it logically attempts to explain human origins and why some of us are prone to insanity but until science can explain consciousness I will not discount anyone's version of reality.
It appears Daniels went insane after the death of her son.
Well yes, many turn to the supernatural when no answers are readily available. It is the beign of those who actually strive to seek out how things work as opposed to those who imagine they are doing something.
Paraglider, I am not limited by conclusions so I posed the question in a way that suggests that it is not necessarily what I believe. The ides for the topic came from a concept by the author Terri Daniel who wrote a book titled "A Swan I Heaven" in which she claims to be in communication with the Soul of her deceased son.
Tiger has committed infidelity, just like countless other men and women throughout history. The only reason it is being made into such a big deal is because of his fame and popularity. That is why you should never put your faith in a celebrity. They are human and imperfect, just like everyone else.
I don't know what the overall purpose was/is. I tell ya what he did learn..... You can devote your whole life to reach a goal.... but it takes only the blinking of an eye to loose track of what is important.
