I began to realize that all of my childhood,whenever I played alone, I usually reverted back to one of several scenes from an earlier time on earth,more often than not, back to a time in the old west. If I played “Cowboys and Indians” I was always a cowboy that didn’t kill Indians, they were always on my side. I could never see why anyone would want to kill an Indian, needless to say John Wayne was never a big hero of mine, I took more of a liking to the Lone Ranger.
Although I have never been there during this existence, one of my favorite recalls is during a life in the Las Cruces area of New Mexico.
Along with these “Cowboy and Indian” times there were other times I envisioned myself being in. One of my favorites being the Revolutionary War. Having grown up on a farm in Indiana, whenever the weather was cold and snowy and I didn’t have a basketball in my hand, I was very vividly remembering and playing out the winter at Valley Forge.
How often have we all acted out scenes such as these? Are they just play acting, or are we “remembering” times from our past? At first I thought like everyone else that it was “just play”, but as I went on to learn and honestly believe now, it is a “remembering” from a time in our Soul’s history.
This all naturally lead to the study of reincarnation, a subject I had read a lot about, and which I was soon to find out most people were only willing to talk about at arms length, most were afraid of something of this nature. It went against what they thought the bible taught and they were afraid that God would get them.
I was soon to realize that a lot of people were afraid of a lot of things and this was what was really holding them back from growing. There is no such thing as the devil, people have created that belief so they have someone to blame all of their problems on. They don’t want to face up to the fact that they are afraid, and are capable of solving their own problems by overcoming that fear, whatever it is. This is how we grow, we do it ourselves, God or Jesus doesn’t do it for us, they only try to show us the way.
Taking into account everything that I have studied, I have found reincarnation one of the most interesting. There are several things that should be considered when one engages in this study, one is not to get hung up on personalities. We are all just playing roles in this and any life we have led, if we come upon a lifetime in which we were some sort of famous personality, it should be remembered that we were that person to learn a lesson. If you had a life time as Alexander The Great, there is a real good likelihood that you were also a galley slave on an Egyptian warship.
