So apparently in the time and space between death and birth, our spirits have this greater, broader perspective that we don't otherwise have while we're in our human form... and use this perspective to plan for our next human/Earthy life. I been told quite a few times on and off this site that while we may want something in and/or for our next life, our spirit, when it's time to reincarnate, might not feel the same way, due to having access to that broader perspective... But what if I'm dead-set on something? What if I don't care in the slightest about some "broader perspective"? Because I really don't! There's just one little aspect about my next life and it is immeasurable how much it means and matters to me. If I'm being egotistical or closed-minded then so be it! In fact, I kind of like being told things like "it's just my ego" or "I'm not being open-minded" so-on and so-fourth just for the satisfaction i get out of emphasizing how important that thing is to me... in such a sense that I don't even care if there's something "better" or even "more to my liking" than what I want. This one little detail is more important to me than life itself and it always will... and I didn't open this thread looking for reassurances or for people to coddle me. But I just have to know something: is it even remotely possible that if i feel very strongly about something will it really override whatever broader-spirit perspective has to over? Even if nobody knows I hope to beyond the Heavens that it does.
