Past Lives & Reincarnation.

Could the past be back there at the beginning of this sentence where there was a life or aliveness to simply read it then?

Could there still be life or aliveness which has reincarnated as another thought to recapitulate these words as they are read now?

Could the phrase/concept/words:~ Past Lives & Reincarnation be that simple and obvious?

No~thing complicated there then!

And how easy was it to reincarnate at the end of this post to simply say, "All the best to ya...bye!"

Just as no single point in the river can ever stay the same beyond each present moment of now - - that does NOT mean that we must dismiss the awareness that there IS a headwaters to the river and there IS an outlet to the ocean.

It all works together. Understand that. Let it all work for you.

To try and isolate each little facet - - to dwell on isolated concepts and principles and quibble over whether this one particular concept works here or there or is viable anywhere and what are the exceptions to it all - - is the workings and play of the mind.

Look at and work from the Big Picture, people. An automobile engine works because all parts are working as they need to be. If someone wants to sit down and ask - - gee, is the gasoline that is just about ready to jet into the fuel filter any more important than the gasoline that is already being fired in the cylinder - - then - - let them quibble over that one if this is one of their delights in life.

Of course - - when the automobile engine is ailing - - it's time to seek a mechanic.

But in life - - we are our own best mechanic. Our "troubles" come mostly from identifying - - then being aware of - - and then dealing with - - the various layers of issues.

That - - is what the old phrase - - Know Yourself - - is all about.

No problems with the car. It's doing just fine. Other than wrestling with gas prices.

And - - God did not come from anywhere ! !

I have read that there is no time,yesterday,today and tomorrow are all the
same.Hence,if we reincarnate,perhaps we are living more than one life at a
time. Anyone know anything about this??

Interesting question. I wish I could elaborate unfortunately I don't know much about it. The concept of time only being a product of the mind and past, present and future all existing simulataneously has always intrigued me although I can't say that I understand it. This is definitely food for thought though and I'd love to hear what others have to say.

People seem to misunderstand the concept of time - - or try tp plug it in / apply it where it shouldn't be applied. One of the main reasons why people dismiss the concept of time is that there is no "official" clock somewhere in the Lower Worlds of Duality to which "time" must adhere. In other words - - there is no actual clock somewhere that syncs time throughout the rest of the lower worlds.

Time is our perception of change. Things - - change. How fast / slow they change - - gives rise to the concept of the passing of - - time. If you wish to consider that there is no time - - and that the past / present / and future are all the same and are happening here and now - - then all the phases of the moon and the changing of the tides and the aging of the bodies and such - - is just fireworks / entertainment for the mind.

Tho time may not be "real" - - it is a nessary way to keep up with the changes of the days / weeks / months / etc. Tell your boss that since there is no time - - that you will be in to work whenever it suits you. Or - - that since we are living the past / present / future now - - then you "worked" last night while you were asleep and that you already did a "day's work."

I'm sure your boss will accept that.

In these worlds - - things - - exist. I am not talking about the Pure Worlds where there are no "things." Here - - things - - exist. And - - things - - change. Therefore - - some kind of concept that gauges those changes.

The fact that people twist these concepts around just shows how "odd" the mind can be - - and how gullible we are to accept preposterous theories as more "real" than what is obvious to our senses - - both inner and outer.

You are NOT the same as you were yesterday. You are not even the same as only a moment ago. Your blood cells have moved. You have taken another breath. You are different. Let alone - - from lifetime to lifetime.

Try to just keep it simple. In that way - - understanding of life is somewhat easier.
