Has anyone ever had recurring dreams or knowledge about future lives? I don't have them anymore, since I "accepted" what the dreams told me, that I'm to be born in some future time and be paralyzed from the waist down in an accident when I'm fairly young. Then I have to go on to be a wheelchair-bound lawyer. I'm evidently going to provide legal aid to the poor. I didn't know what to make of the dreams at first. Now I just take it all for granted. I had those dreams when I was younger. Afterwards, I started studying the things that happened to me in this life. I noticed that I've been "prepped" for the kind of life those dreams described for the entire duration of this one. For instance, I've had any number of obstacles to overcome in every imaginable form. I became so adept at problem solving and moving around obstacles that I barely stop to look at problems, and I rarely have them for long because I just fix them - I live life like a sitcom where everything is resolved in 30 minutes (or if it isn't, I come to some resolution or resignation that I need to live with it). And without going into detail, the problems I've had are extreme - the kind that other people come to a screeching halt with. I see that as preparation for a life as a parapalegic. I honestly, to the bottom of my soul, view that as just "one more thing to get around." It doesn't frighten me at all, and I don't feel anything resembling self-pity. There are worse things than that. Truly there are. I have also, from the time I was little, been trained in debating. I can "read" people. I know who's bluffing and who's full of it. Nobody scares me. I can put up a mean argument. I usually win. I've had no good reason to learn that for this lifetime - but I'm evidently going to need it for next time. So when you have challenges or problems, or things that recurringly happen to you but nobody else, do you ever study them and ask yourself why you might be having these things happen to you? Why learning to deal with them might be useful later? I do. I don't think anything happens without good reason.
