    Yes because we choose everything. When we will be born, parents and even some of the paths we choose during the present life. It's planned out, if it wasn't you would be back there pretty quick.

    OK. Sometimes my posts are too brief. What I was really getting at is this. Here we are, and as you rightly said, we know we are going to die. But unless we can be certain what will happen after that, then we don't know that we will be born in a new life afterwards. In my view, the future is yet unwritten. For example, aside from the common view that "a single life is all you get", there is the possibility that this may be a final incarnation here, hence there may not be a subsequent rebirth. I'm sure this could be elaborated on, the possibilities explored in greater depth, but this will do for now.

    I would be delighted if this were my last reincarnation. I really hope so.
    @Speedwell, do you consider it a problem if this were your last life?

    Good question. I'd be happy if this was the last time on this merry-go-round. Though I think it's unlikely. But still, who knows for sure how this all works?

    I like to think that this life is like a two week vacation. When it's done you are back to work!
    You would know if you have finished reincarnating. If you have to ask then you haven't.
    I'm on the 19th and I haven't done yet!

    I must say, Graham, you seem remarkably certain about these things. The more I study this field, the more wide open it becomes for me. What once seemed certain to me is now just one avenue of many.

    I have gained a lot of understanding on these issues over the years, with some-thing's I have discarded over the years. For example I don't believe anyone comes back as animals or was an animal in a previous life. I think I can accept they might have their own reincarnation, but since nobody can talk to animals yet how can we know? I believe that birds do talk. Actually I think they gossip mostly about us. But I might be crazy on that one!!
    I once thought I might have been Percy Shelley in a PL, but I ruled that out, since he went to University and was much more left wing than me. I also realised that one of my past lives that I was certain on, overlapped with his. So that ruled it out.

    At one time I believed in a Soul Mate too. But now I think that would be wrong, to just have one special soul. It doesn't fit in with the other world were everyone goes after death.

    I seem to agree with this part although I don't know any way of knowing it for sure. People's beliefs run all over the place, that is part of my interest in this forum. Some seem unable to imagine themselves without their physical body (those speaking about Rapture come to mind) while on the other extreme are folks talking about the worthlessness of the human body. Some consider physical life to be the important part of existence while others see it as a vacation from the important part of existence.

    I came across a theory that we have many soulmates. I believe the soul cluster was about 500 souls and the soul mates were about 50. Only a fraction of these souls incarnate at the same time, so at any given time you might have ten or so soulmates roaming the planet somewhere.

    It makes sense to me, at least to a degree. I have someone in my life I can only refer to as a soul mate, but we are entirely platonic. We are just best friends that complete each other, and we have been such in past incarnations as well. I would hate to think that because I am best friends with this person that I will always lack the ability to have a romantic soulmate connection.

    The idea of communicating with animals is nothing new but anyway I would love some advice or pointers towards some deeper things understandings wise as I am learning.

    I used to believe in a twin flame before I remembered reincarnation. Then I realised soulmates were just people I knew before and I was destined to learn from them and change through those experiences. It wasn't about romantic love ( mostly ), it was about learning.

    Soul Mates if you like are not people you know from previous life, but souls from the other side that know you and work with you in your lives on Earth.
    Since it's love that is the connection, you will keep meeting these souls again and again. If the love is really strong, then your best friend can become your wife, husband, sister, brother, mother, father, aunt, uncle and numerous other relations. And that applies to any other connections. Some people might find it bizarre that your wife in a past life, is now your sister, mother, father or husband in this life, but what is important is the love connection, not some human moralistic issues, which are for the most part flawed.
    When I say "love" of course, it is not the Earth, or human concept of love, more a sort of bonding or union of souls.

    One soulmate I met was my fiance from my immediate last life. We may have soul contracted on the other side but here on Earth she was someone I recognised instantly and that was before I remembered reincarnation.

    The more I know and understand, the clearer it is that I almost know nothing.
    My reality doesn’t have to be another’s reality. I can fill in my own understanding of Life, the After Life and everything in between and above. It will work for me and people like me. But that’s not all. There are so many alternate realities at the same ‘time’. In my reality I am captain of my own ship and I create my own life, step by step. Other people talk about Higher Beings that help them to reincarnate, so they think all is organized with a Big Plan and a Creator in charge.
    I think these options and many other variations to it, may be all ‘true’ at the same time. Just a different point of view at the same scene. I choose before this life that in this one I would blend realities, now and than. That’s ok, because it gives me the opportunity to get extra views on life. Other souls have different goals they want to pursue and awareness would stand in their way and they are guided by Higher Beings to jump into the right mother belly. They might think this goes for everybody but why should that be true?
    I think it is not right/mature to think your own understanding should be applied on all humans in this world.
    We have so many origens we come from and we might play with different rules and it’s all the same game.

    Wish I could like that more than once, fireflydancing.
    I might have chosen a slightly different course, but basically, this is what I am thinking.
    To me it is not about who is right and who is wrong, but trying to see the points in other people's views, no matter how much they differ from you own.
    It is the same game, as you say, played with different rules, and it is not about a single winner. If there is anything to win, then everyone can, their own way.

    Yep, I agree with you.

    Btw, I also get help and advice from unseen Beings. They don’t dictate, no force no hierarchy. It’s always like: What is it what you want? This way or that way? We’ll help you anyway.
