    I see we are taking different points of view when looking at city life.
    I like to look what are the guiding lines and the authority in general in human thinking.
    1. When the society is confronting new challenges the TV stations invite so called specialists for an interview. Who are these specialists? In Finland, at least, they are all sort of professors, and military authorities. And leading politicians of course. The same faces are invited repeatedly. No matter if they are lacking spiritual thinking, they get a lot of airtime.
    2. Decisions concerning our intimate surroundings.
    When building a house by the street, the city most likely tells you what colour your house should be. Not to differ from the neighbours. An example of anti-spiritual thinking, isn't it?

    Just a few thoughts.

    Hello Blossom!

    You are not alone with this. I can relate so much to many things you wrote.

    I was very mature and sensible as a child, too. Through my childhood and teenage years until my late twenties, I wasn't much interested in people of my own age. I preferred to hang around with adults or to be alone. I always had one or two good friends, though. But people of my own age and conversations with them, especially at parties, often bored the hell out of me. That's why I didn't like to take part in many social activities.

    I began to read books about spirituality when I was 12 or so. The idea of reincarnation felt familiar with me at once and I wished to remember my past lives. Even more so, I longed to remember the spiritual world, to meet my soul mates and spirit guides again. I felt like an old soul indeed, wiser and more experienced than most people around me, and oftentimes I felt imprisoned by the obligations of life and the limitations of the body. Just being alive felt exhaustive for me. I wished so much to be free again and just as you I often wanted "to go home." I used this exact same phrase so many times, and I wanted this life to become my last incarnation, so I could stay in the spirit world forever after that.

    Later on I also realized I was just not interested in many topics and aspects of life, like getting married, having children, having many love affairs. I felt like "been there, done that". But unlike you, I've always loved modern stuff: music, TV, video games, the Internet, and I cannot imagine a life without it and all the useful, electronic devices we have today. So my detachment from this world was not as extreme as yours.

    I'm sorry you feel so alone and out of place. But I can confirm what Gin said: It gets better when you get older. Things got already much better for me once I moved out from my parents' and once I got financially independent. Today I'm in my late thirties and I don’t want to miss this life. Sometimes I still think "I just want to go home. Why do I need to go through this again?" But overall I enjoy the liberties and possibilities of our modern society. If you live in a western country and have enough money to pay for your needs and pleasures, I think it's a good time to be alive, especially for a young woman. You can go and travel everywhere you want, get educated, choose almost every profession you like, marry who you like or not marry at all - things which would be impossible, unthinkable in other periods of time.

    As was already said by others, travelling and visiting different places and historical sights is of great help to stay in touch with past eras and enjoy current life at the same time. I don't know where you live, but if you are in Europe, there are so many beautiful places here everywhere, different landscapes and sights from many different centuries. One lifetime seems not enough to visit all of them. And then there is still the rest of the world.

    I can also recommend reading classical literature very much. Also watching historical movies, listening to classical music, going to the theatre, the opera or ballet (Just the classical productions, of course. I think many modern productions of classical stage works are terrible!) Learning foreign languages, even if it is only to a small degree, is also something you can do.

    You can be creative as well, writing, painting, singing, whatever you prefer, just for yourself.

    For me being outside in nature is very helpful, too. It's there where I can relax the most and connect with my soul. Especially the sight of water is very soothing for me and it reminds me of my real home. Also watching the sunset and the sky at dusk. It feels like my soul would open up and connect to the spirit world again. Maybe there is something which works for you likewise?

    I hope very much, you will find someone one day, be it a partner or good friend, who shares your interest in the past, so you can travel and discover the world together. Don't give up. You are still at the beginning of your life and there are so many nice things for you to do and to discover in this lifetime. I wish you all the best :)

    One sure sign of young souls is that they live life on turbo mode especially when comes to chasing relationships with the all too predictable results leaving a wake of regret and sometimes devastation behind. At this point all that I am wanting is out and to move on for new experiences elsewhere.

    Another aspect of young souls are the ones who don't incarnate often. I can imagine that God's are doing various experiments with human spirits. If we have among us souls, who have spent long time between earthly lives, their mission, when they finally return, might be a special one. As well as their adaptivity to normal "earn your living" daily life.

    Peace of mind, One's soul ages has nothing to do with actually age as we understand it human terms since soul itself is eternal. Rather it has to the soul 's stage in it's evolution in consciousness and how it approaches life on the physical plane when it decides to incarnate again. Because we all have free will all of us evolve and grow at different paces and time frames which is why there are so many different mind sets, cultures, religions or spiritual paths on planet earth, Yet no matter what stage we are at in our soul growth we all have to go thru these different stages as we reincarnate back here in order for one to reach enlightenment. At that point most souls then no longer need to incarnate in the lower worlds of duality which includes our physical dimension anymore. Instead they take up more permanent resides in one of the higher dimensions beyond the mental plane. However some do decide to incarnate again after enlightenment in order to teach and server humanity in it's global evolution as a species on this planet. Old souls can be anywhere on planet earth be it the country, rural or city environments. Because their focus is not outward so much as it is inwards. This applies to souls at the mature level as well.

    At present the vast majority of souls incarnated today on this planet are at a late young soul stage of development With some small groups of infant, baby and old souls scattered throughout the global. However we are now transiting from late young to early mature which is why there is so much changes going on in the world at present.

    Quote from personality & spirituality below.

    ((Young souls are learning to be independent actors in the world, exercising their free will. Hence, there is a major emphasis on heroic self-assertion and progress, freeing oneself from limiting structures, finding one’s own strengths and talents, discovering “what I’m made of”.

    The main lesson for souls in the third stage of their evolvement is to do with exploring and expressing individuality, discovering the power of independence in thought, will and action. There is a strong desire to make a personal impact on the outer world, so the focus is very much outwards and with a lot of energy.

    At the same time, there is a strong tendency to compare oneself to others, evaluating self-worth in terms of “my” achievements relative to “their” achievements. This outward-bound, achievement-focused sense of self can lead to a determination to be a “winner” — and to be seen to win. The danger is that the appearance of success can become more important than anything else, including even happiness.))


    ((A old souls have expanded their self-awareness to a level where the drama and materialistic pursuits in the world may no longer interest them. The shackles of the 9-5 grind is a prison sentence and they'd rather create a means of employment that reflects personal values and the freedom to explore life with less abeyance to punching in a time clock. Old souls do not possess a burning desire to make a major impact on the world and are tired of playing the material game. For that reason alone they are often deemed eccentrics by the rest of society.

    Innately philosophical and prone to teach by example, the old soul provides wise tutelage to younger souls in need of wisdom and guidance. Generally relaxed and unruffled by the drama of life, old souls demonstrate how to be free of the programming of society and how to live more squarely in the present moment.

    A walking contradiction at times, the old soul both embraces and rejects life. As they pull away from the trappings of the world, they may lead a life of abandonment that can leave them feeling utterly alone. Such choices are not always intentional, but their strong desire for self-reflection and solitude can remove them from the daily doings of the world -- and the old soul is more interested in being rather than doing. ))

    This helps one understand were others are coming from on their journey back home. This is why the earth plane is such a dynamic place where we grow and unfold the most simply because we are all but together here were we must learn to get along and try to understand each other better. This process challenges the soul greatly because it is faced with such diversity of states of consciousness. Where as in the higher dimensions we are grouped together with souls that are of like mind and heart. Which is why there are so many sub dimensions just on the astral plane alone.

    Sorry for this being so long.

    Peace and love always....

    Hm.. Eternity is an obscure concept. Anyway, it is diffult to think that a soul has no beginning, but has an end.
    Also, if a soul has a start in the past, will it cease and vanish one day?

    That's possible, but I wonder how we would all know how many times we've reincarnated. It might be very few times, or it might be many times that we simply don't recall. Sometimes it could take a long (present) lifetime to remember more than one, even!

    Peace of mind, The inner true core essence of who you are as soul has no beginning nor an end my friend. As you are a spark of consciousness from god itself. So like god you are eternal. When we reincarnate our physical body along with the inner subtle bodies and our personality and lower ego that are attachment to them are temporary as they belong to the lower worlds of duality, of time, space and matter. They serve as vehicles of expressions for soul to use while it is here.

    What actually happens is once death takes place on each dimension the soul (our true self) Withdraws inward taking with it the lessons and experiences it had while here and it adds it to the overall essence of the true inner self or what some may call the higher self (soul). This is how the soul evolves. When we die on the physical world the soul goes inward to the next level of reality which is the astral world. The physical is shed and goes back to the elements of the earth plane as it has served its purpose. Now soul is center in its astral body where we experiences our astral after life for a time. However when that is over then the same process happens again and we shed our astral body just like the physical and go inward into the mental plane. This is called the second death. On the mental plane which is much higher in vibration then the physical or astral worlds we live out our heaven life there as the lower ego which was tied to the personality and mind must experience Devachanic or the heaven world. This is where cosmic consciousness' occurs. The soul will spend a much longer time here depending upon it's spiritual evolution. When the time comes the soul will shed off the last of it's remaining lower bodies which is the mental body and arrive where it started from on the causal or soul plane. There the soul is actually above liner time as we know it, as it resonates beyond the mind. This is one of the first of many true spiritual worlds of pure spirit. This is the home of the soul. And where we deicide to incarnate again when we are ready.'

    I know the concept of eternity is hard to grasp because it is beyond the mind, however in truth this is the true nature of who you really are as soul. You can not vanish or cease to exist. You may cease to exist on one dimension however you will exist on another because this is the nature of the soul. However you can and do change form and shift to differently levels of realities. Because even our sciences is beginning to understand that all there is in the cosmos is consciousness itself.

    You already have all the answers you will ever need as they already reside inside you. All you need to do is become aware and knowledge them.

    Love and and peace always.

    Hello Polaris!

    I've never really understood what the astral world and the astral "body" actually means, but read this so often in spiritual literature. What's the difference between the astral world and the higher dimensions, especially the mental plane? And what is the purpose to go and stay there for a while after death? Can you or someone else please elaborate?

    Ocean my friend. Rather than repeat myself here I am sending a you a link to help describe the subtle bodies and their connection to the higher dimensions of our universe. When we incarnate each time we all receive a new physical, astral and mental body for the duration of the incarnation. While alive they work as one unity with the physical however under certain circumstances they can and often do separate for consciousness or the soul if you will to travel to these other dimensions in which we all live on already. We just are not aware of them most of the time. This process happens every night while we sleep and is a nature function of the soul to travel to these other realms while our heavy physical body rests and rejuvenates itself. As long as the sliver cord is connected we can return to the physical body. However once the silver cord is snapped or broken we can not return to this world. Instead the soul will reside now on the astral plane where the soul will begin its afterlife.

    Having had a NDE many years ago taught me the differences between a NDE and actually Death. In a NDE the silver cord is still attached so the soul is allowed to return usually with full recall of what when on, while on the other side of the veil. However if the silver cord is broken then we can not return. And there lies the differences.

    Hope this helps some. Thanks for asking and pleasant travels to you.

    Peace and love

    I don't see the "worlds" directly, but one interesting idea is this: In the stones we can see the material, in plants we see the living, in animals we see the feelings, and in man we see the intelligent ego. In esoteric teaching you see they use words physical, etheric, astral and mental.

    Ocean, I check the link and it seems fine on my end. Perhaps it's your browser? Try this.... Go to google and search under ((The Subtle Bodies and Their Dimensions Spiritual Energy.)) It's should be the first one on the top of the list. let me know if it works.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Peace of mind, I like how you describe the other worlds. A truly unique way of seeing things. However my friend you can't see them directly with your physical eyes as these are higher dimensions which even though they do occupy the same space and time as you do but are on a much finer and higher frequency or vibrations then our physical senses can detect. However you do visit these realms when you sleep every night. Because when your asleep your physical senses are shut down but your astral senses are open and working on the 4th dimension which is the astral world. There you will have various experiences which you call dreams but in reality it's your astral body functioning on the astral plane. Which of course operates on a different laws of physics then our physical world does. In that reality your main mode of operating on that reality is thru feeling and mind.

    However when you are awake here in this world you do use your astral and mental body all the time. When you listen to a beautiful pieces of music which moves you, you are using your astral body to feel the music you are hearing. When you are working out a mental problem say planning to do some home renovations around the house you are using your mental body to process thoughts, ideas and images in the creation of what you would like to create in your home to manifest here in the physical world.

    Mathematics is said to the universal language of the universe. This is because we are using our mental body (the mind) both on the lower and higher mental plane to work out ideas both in concrete form and with abstract ideas. This is where we connect to the universal mind of the universe. Many scientists and inventory both present and past operator from this level of reality.

    Thanks for your creative viewpoints and insights.

    Love and peace.

    There is some logic. After dying we don't see the physical objects, because we have no physical organs. We don't hover over the earth watching what people are doing in their bedroom, and so on. But if we don't have organs for the next realm, we can't see there either.

    Have to correct that upon death one does become much more aware of their surroundings shortly before going home so to speak unless the soul wonders for a time. There is more than enough online of people sharing their own experiences be it NDEs to souls having gone through their death experiences before incarnating again ect.

    Good point.
    To get a logic picture of what is happening in the chain of reincarnation is difficult because of various information I receive.
    Could it be an etheric counterpart of the physical image we can perceive shortly after death?

    Peace of mind, I had to laugh a little bit on your comment. Thanks for putting a smile on my face ;) You are right, the dead don't hang around watching everything we do including having sex. They have much better things to do now. As the dead can't see our world as we do anymore since they don't have physical senses. However they can and do see our astral bodies from their point of view. So they know what we are going thru in terms of feeling and mind set. They do have memories of what it was like to be alive and have a body. But for many of them they really don't miss having one anymore. Because now they are enjoying and experiencing life on a much grander scale of reality. They no longer have to eat, sleep, making money, shelter themselves from the natural elements. be bound by gravity ect.. because all those things are earth plane concerns which have fallen away now.

    The best way I can describe their new plane of existences would be image you lived your whole life in a dark cave. (which would be our earth plane) And all you knew was the dark, damp, wetness of being in that cave. At times you could see shadows casted from the light of a fire perhaps. But to you all this would be ok since this is all you have ever known. Life in the cave was safe and secure for you. Then all of a sudden you left that cave and went outside into the light of the day out into the open air. (thur the tunnel of light into the middle astral world.) At first you would have to adjust yourself to the brightness of the light in your current surroundings. Then as your eyes adjusted to the light you discover a whole new world which lay before you never knew existed.

    You see colors for the first time which you had no concept of their being colors at all. Trees, grass, valleys, blue skies, oceans, cities, towns, the world is exploding with such wonders you never knew. Now if you wanted to visit someone you knew there instead of getting into a car and driving to see them all you had to do is simply wished or feel the desire to be with that person. In a instant you are there with them. For now thought and feeling are now your tools in creating reality there. You could travel to the other side of the galaxy with just a thought and explore the mystery's of the cosmos. This is your new reality now. And the only thing that can limit you there is your ability of imagination and your mind set to conceive it. Your astral body looks like your physical one you left behind but more perfect. It's not a body of flesh and bone but of light. So light in fact that you can fly or float if one wished to. This and so much more which is why the astral world has at lease a hundred different sub planes within it. So yes the dead are in many ways more alive then we are because they live on a higher dimensions of reality then we do.

    Sorry I got carried away there....

    Later....
