Reading this reminds me just how fascinating our brains, bodies and spirits are. There is so much to be learned about them.

My analogy of day-to-day with life-to-life was an absurd hyperbole to simply make the point, that if we lost our memories every night, we could not function as human beings, as we would never make any progress, as we would be re-learning everything. In a way, that is what happens to us as souls in our life-to-life progression.  With the loss of memories, our "progression" is more like "stagnation" or "oppression".

Also, regarding your tale of the Rajneesh, I find that those people who are heavily steeped and invested in a particular belief system, are of course the most eager to defend it, the most unlikely to question it, and the most likely to attack or belittle those who do question it.  They are perhaps not so wise as they want us to think they are.  In the case of the lame man, I think he had a very valid point, but the Rajneesh shut him down with a clever quip, a and made him the butt of a joke. I think that was mean and unhelpful.

My desr friend GM

Again you raise issues that are thought-provoking, and as promised I have today posted the II part of my write-up, Remembering Past Lives. I thank you for this because exactly that kind of a stimulation was required for my brain cells to come alive, for my own learning and understanding. You write very well in conviction.

As for sleep, as you mention in yours, it is a kind of dying everyday to start afresh from kindergarten, I disagree, sleep is a form of mini-death, but we generally, except for those that are not required or are as a load to remember, only those are wiped out from memory. We sleep every day and are again born upon weaking up the next day, but are we totally blank to yesterday's experiences? No. Sleep is a process of revitalising our batteries, sleep eight hours and work sixteen. But the sad part about this is that man still does not learn, or does so very little, because he does nothing to make  efforts at remembering. Everyday I go to sleep and wake up the next day as I went to sleep yesterday. I am the same person today as I was yesterday.

Secondly, we can not, even if we were to break our heads, change Nature's or God's laws one whit. If we say that collectively, all souls that we are, make for God and that everyone of us make mistakes, so God makes mistakes. This means that in no way God is superior to us, which we know him to be, is. This logic is too simplistic because it puts two plus two equals four. His calculations are often complex for us to decipher. From the the Absolutist's  point of view, it says, that even if you were to take out the whole from the whole, the whole still remains behind.

One last point: once Acharya Rajneesh was delivering a discoruse in Bombay which I happened to attend, he said 'God makes everything perfect', to which a lame man got up and asked, 'what will you say about me'? Pat came Rajneesh' reply, 'God has made you a perfect lame'. We may laugh at his witty retort, but it was very telling. Cheers

very interesting thoughts... provides your answer to my question from the other day of "where were we before we were born?"   I've been asking that all my life, while others ask where we go when we die.  I'm not sure why I'm more intrigued by the first.
