Helping to unite all things in the name of love would be my main reason to return, if ever I did, that would be the reason. There's always hope that maybe we'll figure it out and realize what's best for us all, and that would be to unite as one people and love one and other. Wishful thinking?, possibly, but still worth dreaming about. For me that would be the utopiandream, a world where we all get on and get along. Utopia. Love yous all by the way. Happy days peeps. Amen

What do you have a hard time with learning that would
be a reason for you to try again; to overcome or conquer?
And what are you doin' about that? (You really don't have to post it.)

I sure would have my list that I'm diligently using my time left for,
things like
- forgiveness
- realizing my power
- focusing on the positive, esp in people
- showing God's love to others, (when I really don't want to!!! ha!)
- realizing more and more what Reality is

I'm working on 'the me-soul' becoming the person I am destined to become ---a realized soul! HA! (Like all of us.)

It would be nice to advance and move on from 'here', for me.


Ah, Because i love yous all and would love to see each and everyone of yous proper and live life to its fullest. But only if that's what you want. Other than that I spos Ill just take a holiday off in paradise. Amen

What a great post!! One thing I've heard a lot of as of late.. souls come back here as it's so diverse. The diversity exists with our range of emotions and experiences. When we have removed the vail we experience total bliss and conscientiousness. Simply put we come back to experience.

I also feel we come back to learn. I think the biggest things for me to learn are:

- letting things flow as they will
- gratitude
- I have a hard time being able to turn on a feeling. I'd.
love to be able to do this.. esp with gratitude
- letting go of the ego. I'm still trying to understand the ego. It's hard when you are an over analyzer lol.
- helping other to awaken

* The biggest thing I've learned is I have all of eternity to figure it out. So I'm going with the flow and letting the chips fall where they may

Hi Bill, 'letting go of ego'...you got a plan?
A method or idea how to do that ?
I do.

I would come back ( if ever I did ) to witness individual enlightenment being realized. To be enlightened is a beautiful thing. Id like to observe such things. It's a love of its own witnessing souls become universally understood. Love, peace and unity to yous all. Amen

[1] - Interesting position ... You don't know what "ego" is, but you want let go of it. Probably because you heard / read others advise it. There is a good reason your personality has an ego.

[2] - Buddha said he never awakened others, and those who believe differently are "foolish people"; he continued that people are not born foolish, but those who believe that he can awaken them are foolish (Diamond Sutra, chapter #25). Surely, Buddha didn't say others couldn't either.

If you are moving from galaxy to galaxy, you cannot come back to the universe - you have always been there from the beginning. Let me introduce some new train of thoughts. Some individuals might think its purpose is to achieve some dharma/kharma, but can you judge a ant by human based laws? Ants can judge ants, but once the ants life is over - that judgement no longer matters.

Perhaps you don't believe in some form of judgement after death. Then how about creation? If you are a story writer and you created a character to represent some stereotype, if that creature was meant to murder in your storybook, wouldn't the creature simply have fulfilled it's purpose that you intended no differently than a lion finding it's prey?

From a greater perspective, as a human, when a ant dies, would you even acknowledge its existence?



A tutorial can be apart of the game and not apart of the game at the same time. Usually when you begin a new adventure, you are taught fundamental lessons on how the game works. Every interaction, every character, every event would hold some meaning. Some would have completed a part of the tutorial, while others would have completed another part, and some might create beliefs that there knowledge of the tutorial is superior to the knowledge of the other group, and even numerous sects might rise up in order to control the tutorial itself from within. All the while, not a single one of them have truly even started playing the actual game. They would have no reference point to begin with, because what they know - isn't what actually takes place. The true question that I like to purpose, outside of social conditioning, how do you know that you have even started being a human in the first place.

The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Amen

There's work to be done....

I'd come back for the sake of the harvest or til every soul is redeemed.

I AM the good shepard. Amen

Ha! welcome to my paradox. Yeah, it seems absurd. However, thats what I get for over analyzing everything.

I wouldn't force anyone to awaken. That's foolish. Yet, helping those that want to be helped is entirely different.
