Think about it?how would it be?Imagine! >>>
There’s a reason that idea appears so often in stories and movies. The idea is perennial: we are avatars, or actors on a stage, and the real us is somewhere else, in this world we are just a projection, an incarnation of a part of us.
If you look into the reincarnation literature (Dr. Brian Weiss, Micheal Newton, and others) they state quite clearly that the we incarnate on Earth to learn in this limited and difficult environment where we have temporarily forgotten our true nature. In between lives, we return to a kind of “heaven” where we debrief, see our old friends, and plan the next life.
Many people who have had “near death experiences” report that their experience felt “more real” than this life and they understood things from a perspective that is not possible walking around on Earth.
We have work to do here, but this is not our whole story.
Yes. Not only is it possible, that is/was actually rather common.
You should read Robert Monroe’s books on out of body experiences. Particularly of note to you should be the “Far Journeys” one, because halfway through it is where you’ll find your answers. There will be a very similar case to your own. But you really should start with “Journeys Out of the Body” to have enough context for the whole thing.
It’s neither a dream nor is it serious, this is what i don’t know.
Was having same sentiment lol! To live this life is already so thoroughly draining enough. What??!?! Wake up to live THE Actual Life? Here’s to hoping, we have more infinite stamina and or infinitely replenishing energy
Very alerting and thoughtful Question
Noted that thread discussion dates back to 4 years ago
Hoping for signs of aliveness or response ^_^
I am in a way an alerting presence to my own self by posting this comment lol
I actually have a theory about this. I call it the Dreaming Soul Theory. It ask the question “Is human existence nothing more than a soul’s dream?” In it, I ponder how you can know whether this is reality or this is a dream.
I think you should take a look at it. Give me your thoughts:
@sandman, “If you look into the reincarnation literature (Dr. Brian Weiss, Micheal Newton, and others) they state quite clearly that the we incarnate on Earth to learn in this limited and difficult environment where we have temporarily forgotten our true nature. In between lives, we return to a kind of “heaven” where we debrief, see our old friends, and plan the next life.” Any books specifically that you would recommend?
@kretox, What would you change if this were true?
@ehsan, Books to start with: “Many Lives, Many Masters” by Brian Weiss. “Journey of Souls” by Michael Newton. After that, I would recommend picking up any of Brian Weiss’ other books. They’re mostly case histories from his professional practice and workshops. I’ve been to several of his workshops – they’re eye opening. Dr. Weiss is very down to Earth. He comes from a completely Western academic and science background, trained as a physician at Columbia and Yale, and was chair of psychiatry at Mt. Sinai in Miami, so he has one foot in “both worlds” so to speak. He has a critical mind and a dry sense of humor.
Newton comes across as a no-nonsense guy. Also from a straight-laced background. Both of theses therapists stumbled onto information about past lives and “life between lives” and were very skeptical at first. They have since become two of the most articulate writers on the subject. Newton is more about “between lives” and Weiss is more about past life regression as a part of psychological therapy.
Reading this information changed my life, my understanding of death, and how I feel about my purpose here on Earth. I hope you find it enlightening.
I actually watched a short tv documentary on this once. I’ve been trying to look for it for years but I can’t find it.
It was about a few people who were in comas for years and in these comas they lived entire lives. One man said he lived out an entire life of an asian girl. Another woman said she lived an entire life of someone in poverty. When I say entire life, I mean birth until death. To them it felt like years went by. WHen they died in their comas lives they woke up in their actual life. Freaked me out thinking about it though. Imagine dying in my current life and waking up in a hospital as someone completely different as if this current life were all a dream..or reality…I don’t know…mind fuck I guess.
wow. I wonder how many times I’ve had a thought about something then came on this site & seen it as one of the latest discussions.
I really don’t know what the hell this is that I’m experiencing but I’m enjoying every moment of it.
@kretox What if life as we know it is just a pregame, we’re just in the process of being born right now. Everything we do in this life prepares us for what we will be in the next. And the moment of our death is the moment of our birth into even greater awareness. Got damned will it feel good to be young again.
Or it’ll be like being born again and then, “oh well, gotta go back to existing :P”
yeah it would be great but what about people with severe mental retardation, stillborn child, blind people, etc…? what kind of awful preparation to a next true life is that?
I respect everyone’s beliefs but in my opinion it’s not logic and all you can find in it is a way of controlling you and make you accept a shitty life and doing nothing about it.
Have a good day
Our existence and what is commonly thought as life, is greatly misunderstood. I don’t at all have the answers but I enjoy formulating theory’s of our existence as I experience life and am exposed to different ideas. It’s a very strange hobby but it works for me. I am certain that our common understanding of life is wrong on many levels, but to a certain degree it fits close enough to what reality is to make it seem feasible. The fact that it fits closely does not at all translate to we are close to an understanding of reality or that our current understanding is close, in fact I believe it to be extremely different. The reality of life, if known would be so shocking that such a huge segment of the population would probably flip out and Chaos would takeover Earth. The governments of the world know some of our realities and feel it’s prudent to keep most of it to themselves. I actually agree. Many could not cope and it would be a disaster. Governments don’t know half of it though, they just know enough to know that the population’s common knowledge of existence is extremely different than reality. I’ve experienced strange things in my life, experiences that gave me certain truths. I can’t tell you how scary it is, not the experience so much, what’s scary is realizing nothing in life is what I thought it was. My advice is think it through and realize that what’s most important in your life is safe and to use your mind to work through it and don’t panic and freak out, it is what it is to coin a phrase.
