I never gave reincarnation much thought. As a spiritual teacher, reincarnation never concerned me. Always interested in man awakening and not coming back to this life.
Now, I had a brother who died a horrible death about 19 years ago. Strangely, my sister would casually mention that her son, my nephew (now 16 years old), seemed to be the incarnation of our brother.
my sister and nephew lived in another state so I never got the chance to meet him in person until about 2 years ago. And, if anybody who knew my brother and met my nephew, would without a shadow of a doubt proclaim he is my brother come back to life.
He never met my brother at all. He was dead 3 years before my nephew was born. His eyes, his mannerisms and attitude is amazingly similar. Beyond DNA and any family generalizations. I always knew he would come back to us, but not in such a definite way within the family.
