Yesterday, while researching reincarnation, I came across a book in which a woman writes about remembering a past life with the 17th century incarnation of John Lennon. Being a big Beatles fan, I was intrigued, and decided to read some more. My search took me to another site, where someone made a comparison between John Lennon and Branwell Bronte (brother of the Bronte sisters), suggesting that Lennon was Bronte reincarnated. While I was reading about this, what struck me was that it seems that this soul, if indeed the incarnations are of the same soul, is choosing lifetimes in which he is well-known. For example, had Branwell not been the brother of the Bronte sisters but rather, an everyday Joe during that lifetime, it wouldn't be as easy to draw the connections between him and John Lennon. Because Branwell was well-known, even if on the periphery of his sisters, it makes his case more prominent. What I was wondering is, what are your thoughts on souls who choose to incarnate into specific "roles", so to speak? Do you think it's possible for a soul to be incarnated as a famous person in two different lifetimes, and if so, what draws these souls to that kind of life? Are these souls somehow different from those who live ordinary lives? Any thoughts?
