    Songs You Are Listening To -- Part II

    Hi Cyrus, Your favorite above is remarkably similar (in terms of visual and dramatic elements) to a long time favorite of mine: Here it is with the Russian subtitles and some translations: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLTf-R9gj_0 Cordially, S&S

    Druidry

    Exactly, that is one of the things I really appreciate about Druidry. :)

    Druidry

    "As far back as the 1st century BCE, Alexander Cornelius Polyhistor wrote that the Gauls [Celts] teach “that the souls of men are immortal, and that after a fixed number of years [possibly in the Otherworld or Summerland?], they will enter into another body.” Julius Caesar wrote of the Celts in...

    Pleased to meet you all and any Cathars!

    Hi Speedwell, I wish I could find an available online copy. I'm interested in Guirdham's books (even those that don't deal with the Cathars), but they can be hard to get without spending a bit of money for an old out-of-print copy. I just did a preliminary check online with no success, but...

    Druidry

    I have been interested in Druidry for quite a while, and will probably be getting more involved in the future. So, I thought I would check and see if anyone else is or has been involved in this. It typically includes, but does not require, a belief in reincarnation, but this is not its...

    Shaar Hagilgulim - Kabbalistic work on Gilgul, concept of reincarnation

    I am no expert, but for people generally interested, I would suggest the following three videos from a Jewish Rabbi. What you will find is distinctively different from the usual view of reincarnation, but very interesting none-the-less:

    Songs You Are Listening To -- Part II

    First time I've posted on this thread, and my memories of the Doors (despite being a sound from long ago when I was a different person), drew me. I only listened to the first 10 songs, but it was enough for now. Still great music, evoking a different era and a different me. I'm no longer...

    Pleased to meet you all and any Cathars!

    Another year, and another Guirdham book found online. The missing "second" book I mentioned above--"We Are One Another": https://archive.org/details/weareoneanother0000arth/mode/2up So, I'm wending my way through it, and finding more new things as well as some of the usual disappointments. I...

    Shaar Hagilgulim - Kabbalistic work on Gilgul, concept of reincarnation

    Hi Tman, I have read online articles re Gilgul, but never tried to delve into the source materials. Mostly, I was interested in general articles from Jewish believers citing scriptures they believed pointed to reincarnation (gilgul) in the Old Testament. However, your comment inspired me to...

    Why does the majority remember nothing about past lives and what is the point of this life if you take away 0?

    Hi Ocean, Probably not "MIBs" and I don't think I am a "soul trap" person (though that may be because I am not certain what the term means)--however, I do have mixed feelings and mixed thoughts about how to interpret the available data/information. For example, most of the time, I take a...

    Why does the majority remember nothing about past lives and what is the point of this life if you take away 0?

    Follow-up--- I would be remiss if I failed to mention another possibility. Newton (and others) have mentioned that new souls have a very hard time, at least initially. So, I can understand that they might not want to come back, and that some were forced. Using the school analogy, I can...

    Why does the majority remember nothing about past lives and what is the point of this life if you take away 0?

    Hi Baro-san/Ocean: My immediate thought was more cynical and more ominous. I.e., someone or some "group" in the after-life realms saw what was happening and shut it down. I.e., the malcontents were getting a chance to let us know that not everyone is here voluntarily, and loves the chance to...

    Why does the majority remember nothing about past lives and what is the point of this life if you take away 0?

    Hi Ocean, This was a very worthwhile video for me. I can't say that it shook my paradigm, because I had already come to the conclusion that Newton's portrayal of the afterlife (besides being contrary to some things reported by others) seemed to be just a bit too neat and orderly (including...

    Why does the majority remember nothing about past lives and what is the point of this life if you take away 0?

    Hi Goddes, So much of what I am hearing reminds me of the Cathar viewpoint. But, if you are correct, caution may be in order. You are only one, and the people that believe as you do are, IMO, too small a number in comparison to the bulk of mankind to be of much importance to any hostile...

    Why does the majority remember nothing about past lives and what is the point of this life if you take away 0?

    Hi Cloud, In my experience, P. always speaks with complete conviction and certainty as one who infallibly KNOWS. There are no IMOs, no references to authorities/sources, or "according to" statements. I've called him out on this a few times with no impact whatsoever as far as I can tell. So...

    Why does the majority remember nothing about past lives and what is the point of this life if you take away 0?

    Hi Cat A very good question. One for which I have heard a variety of reasonable sounding answers, but none that I could consider certain and irrefutable, though some are better than others. I’d say more but currently restricted to cellphone and I don’t use it with the speed and ease of my...

    Is there a word for a belief that humans only come back as humans?

    Hi TABA, I think we should make a distinction here between animals and intelligent beings. Of course, animals also have a degree of intelligence, but there is, none-the-less, a tremendous gap between animals and people. However, there are some accounts of of humans having PLs as intelligent...

    Is there a word for a belief that humans only come back as humans?

    Hi Baro-san: Now I'm surprised! ;) Anyhow. the Tree of Life was not forbidden to Adam and Eve, but there is no specific mention of them eating from this tree, and perhaps they had no need during the period the story covers (and perhaps they did eat from the Tree of Life and there was no need...
