Reincarnation 1, 2, 3
The purpose of life has now been established: It’s to have a good time. If you’re not having a good time, why not? You are creating your life anew every morning. If you have a job you hate, quit it; find something else. If you’re in a relationship that makes you miserable, end it. Remember, you’re not here for a long time; you’re here for a good time.
Many people I’ve counseled through the years have asked me about past lives, karma, and reincarnation. They are so obsessed with who they were or might have been, they forget to concentrate on who they are now. Well, who you are now and what you do with this life is what counts in the next incarnation, no matter where that is. You could decide to stay in spirit, travel to another planet or galaxy, or come back to what I refer to as the “planet of the apes.” As other spiritual teachers have advised, never come back here. There are loads of better ways to use your recycled soul energy and better places to traverse.
I actually prefer seeing a future life to a past one. It assures me that life continues and doesn’t have to be “payback” for “bad” deeds. Good and bad are judgment calls. What is good in one society, culture, religion, or nation might not be considered good in another. Remember, this illusion is created with opposites. Someone has to wear the white hat and someone the black hat for either to exist. It’s all a game, and you pick your avatar long before you arrive through the birth canal. Then it’s a matter of staying on the course you laid out for yourself in order to achieve what your soul desired to achieve before buying the ticket to ride Disneyland Earth.
