I am really enjoying reading and contemplating your posts Sparrow. Thanks so much for the time and energy you are putting forth.
Very interesting that the soul has attachments and seeks to relive them in the afterlife out of want or desire and not out of necessity. I couldn't help to wonder if sex falls into this category as well. In dreams, especially lucid dreams, sex seems somewhat empty or lacking compared to the physical experience. Makes me wonder if it's because itís just a mental projection as opposed to two separate entities exchanging energies.
When it comes to personal choice, we speak of the free will and expression of the soul. From having one or many sensual and sentimental experiences in the physical world the soul develops attachments to aspects of their journey. Attachments come in an infinite array of forms, one of which is food, and another is drink.
