I have expressed frustration in not having any definitive past life memories, and I have seen others here express the same frustration - that they believe in reincarnation, but have never had memories. So here's something I thought about the other day - what if our beliefs are, in some cases at least, our memories? Maybe we've always known, each life, that we were here before. Maybe upon our deaths we knew we'd be back. So what we remember is that notion that we've been here, and will be here again. That notion that loved ones may be back in our lives. It's not exactly a memory in the sense that some people have them, but ever since I thought of that, I have felt slightly more satisfied. Of course part of me still wishes I knew more, but it's something. Again, just some food for thought.
